Join our Team of Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in the San Diego Natural History Museum. Please note that you must be at least 18 years old to volunteer in our science departments (Birds & Mammals Collection, Botany Herbarium, Entomology Collection, Herpetology Collection, Paleontology Collection, Zooarcheology Lab) unless you are enrolled in an internship program through local area high schools. 

If you are enrolled in an internship program through your school, please complete the internship application. You must receive course credit to qualify for an internship. 

Required fields are marked with an asterick (*). Please provide adequate detail in the application to insure that we can find a good match for your background and interests. References are required. Please note that volunteer opportunities can be limited and completing an application does not guarantee a volunteer position. Thank you again for your interest.
