Volunteering at the Academy
Volunteers have been integral to the success of the Academy for almost 200 years. Almost 400 volunteers, from ages 14 to 80+, contribute their time each year toward our mission. Dedicated volunteers assist visitors throughout the museum's exhibit spaces and provide critical support behind the scenes in research departments and offices.
We offer two awards for excellence in volunteering.
The biggest benefit for volunteers at the Academy of Natural Sciences is the opportunity to learn and share that learning with others.
