Regardless of the size of any museum or research center, it takes many people and their efforts to keep it going and growing. This is particularly true for nonprofit organizations like the Two Medicine Dinosaur Center which receive no tax dollars for operating costs. In order to provide a variety of services to the public, the Two Medicine Dinosaur Center relies in part upon the efforts of dedicated volunteers and always welcomes this exciting help. If you have time to spare and the desire to get involved, the following areas are where your help is most needed:
With the creation of the new Learning Center at the Two Medicine Dinosaur Center, the opportunity to provide a host of educational programs for children and adults alike has grown immensely. Do you like to work with children? Are you interested in creating new exciting educational programs? If so, then volunteering in Education may interest you.
The gift shop in the Two Medicine Dinosaur Center provides the organization with important income through its sales. Do you have a background or interest in retail sales? Do you have a good sense of what products sell? If so, then volunteering in the Gift Store may be something satisfying to you.
Keeping an online presence has never been more important than in today's fast-paced, digital world. Do you like to work on a computer? If so, then working to keep the Two Medicine Dinosaur Center online, current, and exciting may interest you.
Today's marketing techniques and opportunities are limitless. From posters and public service announcements, there are creative ways for an organization to get its name "out there." If advertising or design interests you, then this may be an area where you could get involved.
The Two Medicine Dinosaur Center excavates a large number of fossils from the ground each summer. Volunteers working in the field must be able to sit on the ground for extended periods of time, perform detailed removal of debris from fossil, and at times endure challenging weather.
Excavated fossils are carefully placed in Collections, awaiting preparation and stabilization. Volunteers working in the laboratory must be able to sit still for extended periods of time and perform detailed tasks.
