We are looking for 3-5 volunteers who can help with a music workshop as part of Impact Hub's Impact Saturdays Series on Saturday, February 23 from 10-12pm . Here is some additional info: -it's best if you have a ukelele or guitar you can bring (Plucked instruments are ideal because this is a workshop for beginner musicians to train their ear, not to learn a particular technique) -you will oversee a station where a small group of youth will take turns attempting various music challenges -you don't need to be an expert musician but ideally have experience and enjoy playing music. Contact Ben Turner for any questions: email@example.com 801-703-6094 https://www.facebook.com/events/555279864940867/

At the Natural History Museum of Utah, volunteers play a critical role in the search for, discovery of, and excavation of dinosaur fossils. We need volunteers to join our Paleontology Field team, and help us contribute to the scientific research that takes place at the Museum, and that impacts researchers worldwide. As a Paleontology Field Assistant volunteer, you will be able to be among the first eyes to see the remains of creatures millions of years old. You'll gain valuable experience working with vertebrate fossils, and working in field conditions, and you’ll get specialized training to learn how to prospect for and collect fossil remains. Field paleontology volunteers aid paleontologists in the discovery and excavation of fossil finds. This includes prospecting the sides of rugged mountains, often requiring miles of hiking; manual excavation of overburden rock, requiring hours to days of picking, shoveling and jack hammering; and detailed excavation of the fossil specimens, requiring use of sledge hammers, chisels, smaller needles and brushes. Fossil specimens also require lots of protection (ie. application of plaster and burlap) to transport safely in individual backpacks or collectively on backboards or car hoods. Days tend to be long and physically demanding often times in adverse weather conditions ranging from cold snaps to heat waves. There is limited exposure to chemicals used in consolidates and gas powered equipment during field paleontology. Training and safety gear are provided.
