Summer is a great time for children to visit the Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa, where they can create dinosaur rubbings, hold a fossil, and enjoy other activities. You can take part in that too by volunteering as an exploration station facilitator.
These volunteers assist children in exploring interactive exhibits, and so they must be able to move around the room freely for the duration of their shift. Volunteers must be at least 14, attend orientation and training, and work three hours once a week, Tuesday through Friday. Shifts are flexible.
The museum is located at 53 N. MacDonald. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Yvonne Petersen at (480) 644-2760. Learn more about the museum at http://www.azmnh.org online.
