Volunteers sought to help at Nevada State Museum in Carson City

Sharing Nevada's history with visitors from across Nevada and from around the world has been part of the commitment that the Friends of the Nevada State Museum made decades ago. Now, the nonprofit is looking for volunteers to help reach its mission.

The nonprofit is recruiting volunteers to serve in a variety of capacities at the museum.

In addition to conducting tours for thousands of visitors, volunteers help enhance children's learning opportunities with a variety of nature programs utilizing the museum's Discovery Lab and classroom.

Volunteers also share the history of the Capitol building with visitors. Tours provide guests with information on the Nevada Lincoln portrait, the State Library octagon, and the first Legislative chambers.

Training is provided to volunteers by a number of experts on all aspects of Nevada history, American Indian culture, and natural history.

Residents of Northern Nevada who are interested in learning more can call the Nevada State Museum's education office at 775-687-4810, ext. 237.
