If you love Idaho’s mining and geologic history, you’ll enjoy being part of our volunteer program. The museum is seeking enthusiastic volunteers who love rocks and Idaho history. Operated primarily by volunteers, the museum provides numerous opportunities for adults and children, including school tours, scout tours and badge work, field trips, workshops, lectures, special events, outreach activities and MORE.
We have a volunteer orientation at the beginning of each season (early Spring). Check the museum calendar for any scheduled volunteer orientation.
