Give back what you learn about the natural world.
Become a trained & certified volunteer giving back service hours to Natural and Cultural History Community Partners. To be as inclusive as possible, we have sliding scales for payment and hours accrual. Contact your local chapter for more information.
We are a member of the Alliance for Natural Resource Outreach Programs (ANROSP).
AZMNA won the 2020 ANROSP Program of the Year Award.
We are an Arizona 501c3.
We ask all members and potential members to become comfortable considering Equity and Inclusion as central to learning about our state's natural history.
Our 60-hour training program prepares you to provide volunteer service and leadership to community organizations seeking skilled natural and cultural history volunteers. Become certified and give back volunteer service hours for years to come.
Chapters are geographically dispersed across the state of Arizona. Join an existing chapter near you, recruit organizations to serve as Local Chapter Partners, or put in a request to start a new chapter with your local team. You may also wish to serve on the statewide steering committee.
We acknowledge and honor the original homelands of all Indigenous people upon which our many communities in Arizona have been established; there are 22 recognized nations in Arizona. We recognize they have stewarded this land in since time immemorial. We remember their connection to this region and give thanks for the opportunity to live, work, learn and gather on their traditional homeland. We actively seek to build relationships with Indigenous communities to learn more about this place.
