Volunteer Opportunities-lend a hand on public lands

Administrative Volunteers

Front Desk: Volunteers greet visitors, help answer basic questions (in person and over the phone), sell books from our bookstore, take reservations, direct calls to appropriate individuals, restock brochure racks, and perform clerical work.

Librarian: The Science Center houses a small interpretive reference collection that includes books, multi-media products (CD-ROMs, video/audio cassettes, DVDs), and a limited number of journals. Volunteers reshelve books, catalogue new items, and continue the acquisition of reference materials to meet the needs of instructional staff, area teachers, and other Center users. Volunteers also coordinate the Center’s collection with the Anchorage School District cataloging system.

Aquarium Maintenance: Center stage in the Science Center lobby is a 1000-gallon tank stocked with rainbow trout and other fish and designed to model the aquatic habitats of Campbell Creek. Volunteers complete monthly cleanings of the tank, scrubbing down the tank walls and running all the water in the tank through a special external motorized water filter.
