Dinosaur Volunteers are key in helping visitors explore and learn from exhbits in the very popular Dinosaur Hall at the Academy of Natural Sciences museum. Volunteers can use a variety of touchable objects, activity "boxes" and informal conversation to engage visitors of all ages. Volunteers also assist children in The Big Dig where they uncover buried dinosaur bones, and volunteers can be trained in the Paleolab to do actual fossil preparation and talk to visitors abut this.
Training is generally once a year on Saturdays in May. In rare cases we can do on-the-job training.
