Our Volunteer Opportunities
The museum, being a staff of two, could not operate without its volunteers. Below you will discover the various volunteer opportunities that exist at the museum.
Want to Volunteer?
Fill out the form to the left or stop by the museum anytime to sign up to volunteer!
Researcher Every fact, picture, quote and comment used in the exhibit must be found, checked and double-checked. If you love libraries or are fascinated ferreting out tidbits of information, this is the opportunity for you!
Collection Care Do you love “stuff”? Is Antiques Roadshow one of your favorite shows? Then Collection Care is the place for you. This committee receives the donations, decides if they fit our mission, get them ready for exhibit or storage. You will find, clean, label, store, stack, photograph and repair “stuff”.
Computer Data Entry (training provided) The museum world, like all others, is busy keeping up with the 21st century. We keep a data base of visitors, donors, collections, exhibits, and many other records. If you like working independently this is the spot for you.
Lumberjack Festival (Special Events Volunteer) On July 14th we will hold the 2nd Annual Lumberjack Festival at the Sawmill Museum, Clinton Iowa! If you would like to help out for a few hours that day, or get in on the planning of this fun and exciting event, we need you! Enthusiasm required!
Grounds and Garden The Sawmill Museum is putting in a garden to teach about the social history of 19th Clinton. If you would like to garden or care for the 9 acres of ground, we would welcome your help.
