Tillamook Coast History Alliance
In April, 2015, a group of Tillamook County museums formed the Tillamook Coast History Alliance to help promote our venues
to the rest of the state and beyond. We are now able to post events on a calendar on the site as well as give short descriptions of what our collections have to offer.

Pioneer Museum seeks Volunteers
The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum is accepting applications for volunteer work at the Pioneer Museum as well as at the Kilchis Point Interpretive Trails site in Bay City. Possible positions at the museum include front desk personnel, substitutes for the front desk, docents for tours, research, and typing and filing. Duties at the Kilchis site will be clearing trails, weeding the trailhead locations, and removing invasive plants.
“We do our best to match our volunteers to the tasks
that need to be done,” said Ruby Fry-Matson, the museum’s Volunteer
Coordinator. “We want everyone to have a positive experience and enjoy
the time spent with us. We treasure our volunteers and couldn’t run
this museum without them.”

appointment for an interview, contact Ruby at 503-842-4553 or
