Get involved!

Are you curious like an explorer? Do you like to solve problems like a researcher? Do you enjoy participating in community projects? Do you like to talk about what you have learned? Join a scientist in cutting-edge research, share your knowledge with an eager group of school kids, discover and document treasures...the opportunities are as varied as you can imagine! From historical digs to marine studies, our volunteer program spans the country and touches all aspects of the work we do.

Get behind the scenes, learn something new and make a difference. There are lots of ways you can be a part of the action. Here are just a few ideas.
