Volunteers are vital to Birch Aquarium’s mission. We could not open our doors each day without them.
In the past 12 months, our 400+ volunteers have given the aquarium more than 33,800 hours of their time, a figure valued at more than $383,700. Now, that’s dedication.
Each summer, we attempt to express our gratitude with a special Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. This year’s theme was “Volunteers Are Solid Gold” and featured Summer Olympics flare.
Highlights: A double-decker bus, Olympic “games” in the front courtyard (hula hooping counts, right?), and a staff flash mob to “Eye of the Tiger.” Check out the photos and videos below.
Volunteers, on behalf of our entire staff, thank you!!
