The Oregon Coast Aquarium volunteer spring training session begins April 6. In order to take part, applicants must submit an official application, which is available at the admissions area of the aquarium or online at www.aquarium.org.  After receiving a completed application, the aquarium will then contact the applicant prior to training to conduct an interview.

The Oregon Coast Aquarium volunteer program is in its 20th year and has nearly 450 volunteers. Since its conception, the program has provided an opportunity to learn about the fascinating marine life that is in the Pacific Northwest and to share that knowledge with visitors. Volunteer opportunities at the aquarium exist in the areas of diving, interpreting, greeting, grounds, community outreach and special events.
