To say Chris Sulots is a people person is an understatement.
Chris has been Volunteer Manager for the Musuem since August 2015, having joined the staff a year earlier as an education assistant. He coordinates a cadre of about 45 volunteers who serve as docents or interns, help with events and tend our garden.
A Southern California native who graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in anthropology and archaeology, Chris also enjoys being part of the education team that teaches the Ohlone and Animal programs.
“I enjoyed the combination of being outdoors and learning about science and history and the culture of native peoples,” he said, explaining his academic interests. “I took that education and information and have translated it into educating other people.”
Previously, Chris worked for the East Bay Regional Park District and the City of Santa Cruz as a ranger for the Water Department at Loch Lomond Reservoir.
Chris is currently recruiting high school students to serve as activities leaders for the Summer Camps in July and preparing for a large-scale docent recruitment in the fall. If you are interested in volunteering for the Museum, contact Chris.
