Danville seeks volunteers for museum, park, visitor center

Visitor enhancements coming to three key town sites

Danville's museum, visitor center and national park are looking to enhance visitors' experiences and are seeking volunteers to help with this task.

The improvements are the result of a partnership between the Museum of the San Ramon Valley, Danville Visitor Center and Eugene O'Neill National Historic Site, which is operated by the National Park Service.

"This expanded partnership among the museum, National Park Service and town will provide residents and visitors enhanced information and services at the historic train depot and the national historic site," said Nat Rojanasathira, the town's administrative services director. "Community volunteers are now needed to help bring this effort to fruition."

The museum and visitor center are both situated in the restored 1891 Southern Pacific Railroad depot at 205 Railroad Avenue. The Eugene O'Neill Historic Site is located in the western Danville hills at 1000 Kuss Road, accessible only by a shuttle that meets outside the museum and visitor center.

Some of the enhancements include expanded operating hours at the museum and additional information about the O'Neill Historic Site incorporated into the museum.

"The Museum of the San Ramon Valley will continue to provide valuable collections, exhibits and information that celebrate our history and heritage," said Dan Dunn, the museum's executive director. "By partnering with the town and the National Park Service, we can help build our volunteer base and open our doors to more visitors."

A variety of volunteer roles are available. Prospective volunteers should fill out an interest form by Jan. 31.
