2019 Appeal

Discovery Museum is more than just a place to visit. It’s a community of people—visitors, staff, volunteers, and partners—who all work together to bring our unique learning experiences to life.

Our dedicated staff members, including Outdoor and Environmental Educator Rachel Danford, are all passionate about sparking children’s curiosity and encouraging playful exploration. 

“I joined Discovery Museum after completing my PhD in Environmental Conservation and Policy at UMass-Amherst. My passion has always been to provide opportunities for people to connect with nature, and I get to do that every day at the museum! I love how easy it is for children to engage with nature, and how they show me new and amazing things about the outside world at every program!”
