Polaris volunteers fill a variety of roles at the Museum-from greeting guests as they enter the Museum to assisting with the ecological restoration of Fernbank Forest.

Volunteer Opportunities

Other opportunities for volunteering include: assisting with special educational programs; providing customer service in our Museum Store; helping facilitate special events; performing light office work and more.

Being a part of Polaris benefits you as well. You'll receive complimentary admission to giant screen movies, earn guest passes for hours of service, participate in on-going educational opportunities, and receive invitations to field trips, potlucks, and the annual awards brunch (with awards for hours of service).
