Volunteer Opportunities in the Herbarium

Monday Volunteers

Most volunteers in the herbarium end up doing a few different things to keep things interesting but a few prefer to concentrate on a single job. The choice is yours. We are happy to have your help. We currently have places for approximately 100 more volunteers than we have. Positions that we currently need people for are described below. The herbarium is open from 9am until after 5pm weekdays (volunteers can usually stay until 6:30 or 7 but they have to come in by 4:30). We are likely to be open on Sundays (if there is enough demand) starting after Thanksgiving. There are volunteer jobs that can be done partially or fully at home too.

Special Projects

We always have a number of special projects available that can be tailored to fit the needs of those of you who want to contribute but who have peculiar schedules or requirements. These require that you agree to do the whole project though. Some projects take 10 hrs. others take much more. We can usually tailor one for the amount of time that you have.


We also take interns from various internship programs at High Schools and Colleges. We are proud to have written good letters of recommendation for several good students who have volunteered in the herbarium. Email Lynka Woodbury for more details.
