EUGENE, Ore. – The Oregon Coast Aquarium is hoping to gain volunteers and is hosting an information session and tour to help people sign up.

Volunteers will participate in a five-week “crash course” on Oregon’s coastal environment and interpretive strategies. After the course, volunteers will get to spend a few hours each week at the aquarium working with visitors.

According to a news release, the aquarium sees about 400,000 visitors each year, and the interpretive volunteers help teach visitors about coastal and marine environments. Volunteer positions also come with a few perks including free memberships and free passes, reciprocal membership to nearly a dozen other museums around Oregon and other discounts.

The New Volunteer Information Session and tour of the Aquarium will be held on Saturday, Jan. 11, at 10 a.m. Anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to attend. You can fill out an online application here.

The crash course starts on Feb. 1.
