    2. Volunteer With Us

    The Natural History Museum is operated 100% by volunteers. The volunteers do every conceivable job required by a public museum, from greeting guests each week during open hours, to serving on the board of directors, to dusting the collection, working in the native garden, writing grants and leading school tours.

    Annual volunteer field trips and monthly meetings serve to educate the volunteers on the collection as well as public service interactive skills. Life scans are required for all volunteers. Do any of the jobs appeal to you?

    For more information on the various job descriptions, please call, email or fill out the form here.
