Horse Teamsters

Our volunteer teamsters and horse owners are committed to providing knowledge of horsemanship as well as ensuring the safety of all.  The horses are a favorite for young and old.  We offer many activities that involve wagon rides, equipment demonstrations and horse care.

If you have interest in horses or have your own team, this is the role for you!


Food Services

Do you enjoy baking, cooking, or serving food? We provide food for sale at many public and education events.


Interpretation / Demonstrations

Volunteers are key in creating the hands-on element to our exhibits, programs and events.

Interpreters/Demonstrators are volunteers who are in one of the Village buildings or in a specific area of the Museum. They interpret and share information with visitors.


Education

We offer a wide range of Museum education programs to local educators and their students. Volunteers provide skills for the planning and implementing of these education programs. If you want to be a part of educating our youth, this is where you need to be.


Events

Volunteers are crucial in the delivery of our Museum events.  We offer many events throughout the season and need volunteers for planning, delivery and security.


Fundraising

There are many fundraising initiatives needed at the WDM.  Through your support and hard work, you will raise funds for education and exhibits.
