  • Please contact Dennis Maltbie or Jerod Kratzer via Email or phone (contact info below) to arrange for location and time to meet before arriving at Museum Park.

    This ‘Adopt A Rose Bed’ volunteer opportunity involves maintenance of the rose bushes around the museum grounds.  It is designed to provide flexible scheduling for anyone that cannot attend our regularly scheduled volunteer events but would like to become involved in the Museum Park. 

    Museum Park Volunteers Dennis Maltbie or Jerod Kratzer will assign each volunteer an individual plot in the rose garden and provide instruction on rose maintenance care.  Rose garden instruction should take no more than 30 minutes.  Once trained, the volunteer will be able to arrive any day of the week during museum park hours (dawn till dusk) to maintain their assigned rose bed plot.   

    Training Contacts or Questions:  Call or Email Dennis or Jerod in advance to coordinate day, time and location to meet at the museum.  Dennis and Jerod are in the museum park on the following days and can provide training.  Dennis would also be available one evening a week for training.  Call Dennis in advance to coordinate evening schedule.
