BRADLEY – The Maine Forest and Logging Museum is like the forest- the only constant is change. New growth may change the look of the woods, but they are still the woods. Volunteers, who have come to love the museum in some way -coming to an event, walking the grounds, studying logging history, tinkering with machinery, have shaped the museum into what it is today. It is different than it was, but it is still our place in the woods, and we love it!

Volunteers keep the museum running – literally. Weekly projects on the grounds and in the office keep building repair projects, machine restorations and plain old paper work moving along to be able to offer events and keep the grounds open. We would like to develop a crew to keep the gift shop open for the warm season. There is a place in our woods for those who have extra time on a weekly basis.

Volunteers keep the events happening! With only a part-time director and caretakers, there would be no events without the involvement of many hands at the events. Help with many planning and promotion details may be a great place to use your skills year-round, not just on event days.

Volunteers keep the mission moving forward through participation on the museum Board of Directors. Term limits mean changes for this year – the museum needs new Board members and officers, as well as people to join committees to support the mission. Committee members do not necessarily need to be on the Board. Governance, Finance and Membership/Fundraising committees can be a great way to become more involved and help support your favorite place in the woods.
