Opportunities

Intake for the Houston Museum of Natural Science adult volunteer program is currently paused for the spring and summer of 2021 as we monitor the impact of the pandemic on museum and volunteer programming. We will re-evaluate in late summer 2021. Please continue checking back for updates!
