AMM currently enjoys a robust group of 363 volunteers who worked a total of 8,187 hours in 2019. However, recent expansion, including renovations at the McNasby Museum location that will be completed in April along with the refurbished skipjack Wilma Lee, has made it necessary to grow its corps proportionally.

“Our hard-working volunteers continue to be the heart of the organization,” said President/CEO Alice Estrada. “Local residents interested in history, continuing education, or handy with a hammer will find great options for involvement with various levels of commitment. There is something for everyone!”
