Cave House Museum Seeking Volunteers

Written By Editor on 5/9/23 | 5/9/23


HOWES CAVE, NY­— The Cave House Museum of Mining and Geology is looking for volunteers to help support its programs this summer.


As a nonprofit, NYS-chartered educational institution, the Cave House Museum promotes an understanding of the importance local and regional geology and mining plays in our lives. 


“Volunteers can join us at one of the coolest spots in Schoharie County,” said Paul Griggs, director of the museum’s board of trustees. The museum is adjacent to the original entrance to Howe Caverns, which exhales a refreshing 52 degree current of cave air on hot days.


The museum will be open on the second Sunday of June, July, August, and September for about six hours each day.


“This is a great opportunity for anyone with an interest in geology, rocks and minerals, fossils, caves, wildlife, and working with the public.” Said Griggs. “The hours are flexible, and you’ll be working with our own dedicated experts in their field to support one of the most fascinating places in upstate New York.


Those interested in volunteering should email museum trustee Dana Cudmore of Cobleskill at, or attend any of the museum programs this summer.
