Description

Thank you for choosing to share your time with the Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals!

 

This volunteer opportunity is an event with multiple volunteers working with the museum to replant our rock garden with native plants, grasses, and shrubs. If we have an abundance of volunteers we will work on the rock garden project and other landscaping projects to help the museum.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult for this volunteer program.

Volunteers are asked to bring water, gloves and any preferred tools. 

The museum will provide plants, some tools, and a huge amount of gratitude for our volunteers!

 

As a thank you to our volunteers in attendance the museum galleries will be open for you to explore.
