IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE AAS:
1) The AAS is not open to the public or available for casual visits, because it is an active scientific excavation and located in a construction area. Educational group visits may be scheduled through the Perot Museum education department.
2) There are a limited number of volunteer slots and currently all positions are filled. For more information or or to get on the waitlist, please contact the Perot Museum volunteer ...office. We will post here when new slots open up.
3) In order to volunteer you must be at least 18 years old (sorry no children are allowed), like working outdoors, and are capable of doing minor manual labor. We are looking for people willing to commit the time to be trained in proper field techniques and attend multiple digs. This is not something that you only do once.
