The Museum's celebration of the College of Idaho's Homecoming Week activities begins with a wine reception. It will be followed by a public lecture by Dr. Ron Bitner (a member of the Museum's Board of Directors) on "Adventures of a College of Idaho Bee Biologist" and a presentation of awards. The College's new President, Dr. Charlotte Borst, will give an introduction. Come meet her and see who will get the Outstanding Museum Volunteer for 2015, Faithful Museum Advocate, and Museum Legacy Awards!

The event is free, and all are welcome.

Regularly scheduled events

Friday afternoons: Escape to the Museum (Museum open 1-5 pm)

Workdays: The Museum is open to the public one Saturday a month, from 8:00AM to 5:00PM except during the lunchtime seminar. Members of the public are invited to view the Museum, work with staff on a variety of Museum projects, and attend seminars. Click here for more information. Please contact Bill Clark, 208-375-8605, or Dave Ward, 208-888-6008, if you would like to volunteer or need more information.

PLEASE NOTE: For over 30 years we have supplied lunch for volunteers, more than 18,000 tacos by our best estimate! Unfortunately, with the recent remodel of the science building we no longer have access to a kitchen so we must ask volunteers to make their own lunch plans. If we can find another way to carry on this long-standing tradition, we'll be glad to be fixing tacos for volunteers once again!

Seminars: Free talks, usually on some aspect of natural history, from noon to about 1:30 on Museum workdays. Feel free to bring your lunch!
