The Pacific Museum of Earth is one of UBC’s main outreach hubs. Our core mission is to showcase the wonders of our dynamic Earth, promote an understanding of processes happening on Earth and other planets, and inspire visitors to observe and respect Earth’s magnificent landscapes and treasures. To fulfill this mission, the museum depends heavily on the support of volunteers. We’re always looking for enthusiastic people to join our volunteer team.
