American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) Field Research Station
What We Need
We have a small staff, and we seriously rely on volunteers to keep the Station operational! Our volunteers work 4 hours a day/6 days a week on various chores. They wash dishes, assist in the kitchen, clean rooms or labs, and assist with maintenance and gardening duties.
When & Who
What we Provide
You receive free room and board with 3 delicious, home-cooked meals a day in exchange for 24 hours of service per week. You will have many hours of free time, with hiking, world-class birding and photography opportunities all nearby. The biological richness of this area attracts scientists and naturalists from all over the world: birders, herpetologists, entomologists, and botanists — a university environment in the mountains! The Station sits at 5400’ and offers exceptional birding, hiking, photography opportunities, a swimming pool, outdoor volley ball, and ping pong.
3 meals per day.
The volunteer is responsible for any expense and travel arrangements related to arrival at the Station or to Douglas, Arizona. Most choose to fly into Tucson, Arizona and take a shuttle to Douglas, Arizona where we pick them up in the Station van. We also deliver them back to Douglas when their work is complete.
