Volunteer for MVZ Events
We can always use helping hands for museum events like Cal Day and the Annual Holiday Potluck. Volunteering to help with these events is a great way to meet new MVZ folks and it’s a benefit to the museum community. MVZ Events are always successful but only because YOU are involved!
