The Burke's Dino Days!
March 3 and 4, 2018

The Burke Museum relies on the generous support of its volunteers, especially for our major events! Join us as we celebrate our last year in our current building and prepare for our biggest event of the year: Dino Days! Volunteers at this event will work alongside staff to facilitate fun, educational experiences for our youngest visitors and their families. From unearthing an ichthyosaur fossil in a dig pit, to creating a fossil cast to take home, to chatting with current paleontologists... it's bound to be a great time. We need all hands on deck for this event, so please consider signing up as a group!

Volunteer shifts are approximately three hours and cover a wide range of positions. Volunteers are needed for Sunday, March 4 only. Please contact burkevol@uw.edu for more information.
