Student Interns

Our 2016-2017 student employees are Emily Hughes and Emmie Van Wyhe.

We are happy to employ student interns on our team to help out with our museum kits, family programming, database, and more!

UAF students assist our department in many ways. See for openings.

Support student interns. See our giving page for more information.


Community Volunteers

Volunteers are a vital part of our team. Docents guide all our Directed Discovery school tours, event volunteers make community programs possible, and afterschool interns mentor elementary students. Volunteer with us to join the team!
