Be Part of the Action

Volunteers and Docents

Volunteers and Docents play important roles at the lab, working with faculty and staff to support our research, education, and outreach missions throughout the year.  Whether its helping at events like the Biennial Open House and Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta or working in the field or laboratory with our scientists, the dedication and enthusiasm that you bring to the lab contributes significantly to our success. 

Sound like fun? Be part of the Action and join our merry band!  Read the FSU Volunteer Policy and then let us know what you you want to do by filling out the Volunteer and Docent Application.  If you think you want to be a docent, read the  Docent’s Training Program: Instructional Material, so that you know what you are getting into.

Once you become a volunteer, you and the person supervising your work will fill out the VOLUNTEER RECORD SERVICE FORM  and timesheet for reporting your hours.  

Keep in mind that all volunteers are considered ambassadors for the lab and are expected to comply with the time and dress requirements,  adhere to all security and safety rules, and conduct themselves in accordance with the standards of conduct and ethics of the FSUCML.
