ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum is looking for people to volunteer in the Black Bear Garden.

A new Adopt-a-Bed program is designed for residents to take an active role, and groups or individuals are encouraged to donate their time or service projects in the garden. The program is a commitment for the gardening season, or an individual may choose to do one shift per week or as a drop-in gardener on Fridays.

Find Black Bear Garden on the ScienceWorks website under exhibits. For information, contact Isabel at or 541-482-6767, ext. 229.
