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. Plan to show up before 12 pm so you can get into the building through the Museum's downstairs entrance. (It will be locked during the seminar so the staff can attend.) Feel free to bring your lunch!
