The Center and the Natural History Museum work together to provide a very active volunteer program that focuses on lab work, excavations, and outreach. 

Volunteers provide the primary labor force for much of our fieldwork, laboratory processing, and fossil preparation.  Because of this, they are often the first to see something new and exciting, such as the first known skull of a new type of badger or a totally new and undescribed species.

Our volunteers range from young college students to retired engineers and professors, and from artists to medical doctors.  Without this dedicated group we would not be able to retain our high level of productivity. 

Thank you Volunteers!

If you think you may be interested in our volunteer program, please contact us.
