What To Expect
Volunteer opportunities with Coastal Discovery Museum are fun and easy! Whether you're a student looking for community service hours or an adult looking for a cause to support, consider giving Coastal Discovery Museum volunteerism a try!
Psst: Students, as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, your volunteer work through us counts towards your total hours.
As a Critter Meet and Greet Animal Handler, you'll showcase your exceptional people skills while learning more about the fascinating wildlife of the Lowcountry. Your role will involve educating guests about local reptiles, handling animals with visitors, and ensuring everyone follows our safety protocols (don't worry, we provide additional training).
You'll also be a Critter Meet and Greet Greeter! As a greeter, you'll welcome guests, collect fees, and have the opportunity to strike up conversations about the Critter Meet and Greet. (If you prefer to look at animals but not touch, we still need you! Don't let Animal Handling deter you if that's not your thing.
During the Meet and Greet, you'll have the chance to get hands-on with the animals, hold a critter or two, capture memorable pictures with your favorite creatures, and engage in informal yet educational discussions about the diverse wildlife of the Lowcountry.
