Become an Insect Ambassador

Steve Upperman, long-time Insect AmbassadorVolunteers are an important component of the Bug Zoo and play an integral role in the success of our outreach efforts.

Each year, our dedicated Insect Ambassadors give hundreds of hours of their time to create displays, assist with educational outreach, create content for the website and social media pages, photograph & digitize the specimen collection, work in the pollinator gardens and get acquainted with all the Bug Zoo animals.

To get started, complete the volunteer form.  All applicants are required to attend a volunteer orientation session and have a background check completed.
