More about volunteering
Volunteers get access to special events, in-depth training and resources, and opportunities for growth and stewardship.
From supporting our school group visits, gardening, helping with special events, collecting data out in nature, engaging with the public at community events, or enhancing our collection records, there are plenty of ways to get involved and volunteer with the Museum. Check out all of our volunteer opportunities.
Youth under the age of 14 need a guardian present for all volunteerism. Youth who are at least 14 can volunteer independently with parental permission. Guardians are encouraged to attend the orientations.
Opportunities are available for volunteers of all abilities.
