Please join us in congratulating our 2016 Polaris Volunteer of the Year, Stephen Seabolt.

DSC_1460For the past 6 years, Stephen has offered a welcoming smile to all, from guests to Museum staff. He rotates his time between a variety of volunteer roles, including Museum Greeter, Giant Screen Theater Attendant, WildWoods Greeter and as a trained facilitator for the permanent exhibit, A Walk Through Time in Georgia. Stephen enjoys interacting with guests of all ages and shares the enthusiasm of every visitor who walks through our doors.

On Sunday, April 30, Polaris and FUN youth volunteers, along with Stephen, will be honored for their service to the Museum at the annual Volunteer Awards Celebration, hosted by Fernbank President and CEO Susan Neugent. We have a lot to celebrate—in 2016, this amazing group contributed more than 20,000 hours of service!

Please note: due to this special event, the Museum will open an hour later, at 11am, on Sunday, April 30.

At Fernbank Museum, there’s much more than dinosaurs and giant-screen films. Even with our website, e-newsletters, Facebook pages and Twitter updates, there’s still a lot we’d like to share with you. This blog is an opportunity for the people that keep Fernbank running and constantly expanding, to share stories from their point of view. We hope you’ll enjoy these first-hand, behind-the-scenes glimpses of what goes into keeping a world-class natural history museum running. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on these stories, to hear your personal experiences and hear any suggestions for topics. Happy reading!
