GREENLAND, NH — The Great Bay Discovery Center is holding its annual exhibit room training for volunteers on April 18. The training runs from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is for anyone who is interested in staffing the exhibit room in the Discovery Center.
The training will prepare volunteers to interact with public visitors, interpret the estuary discovery tank, complete with flounder, horseshoe crabs, and more! The training will provide a solid foundation for teaching visitors about the Great Bay estuary. The Discovery Center is open May through September, Wednesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and only on weekends in October. Volunteer shifts are scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on those days.
