Get Involved

The easiest way to support CESM’s mission of non-profit science education is to become a member! You will receive access to over 250 ASTC science and technology centers, special discounts on CESM programs, and access to our “Members Only” special events! On top of that great value, you will also get a great feeling of happiness for supporting non-profit science education!

Do you have interesting and special earth science artifacts, technology, tools, or other that you want to preserve and share with the world? Consider donating your collection to CESM and have your legacy preserved.

Every year, volunteers share many of their talents and hundreds of hours of their time helping the Colburn Earth Science Museum fulfill its mission. Volunteers help with the nonprofit museum’s annual mega-mineral show, Gem Fest, and at the Colburn’s booth at downtown Asheville’s annual Bele Chere street festival. The Colburn Earth Science Museum also has benefited from volunteers giving of themselves through the United Way’s Day of Caring. Other volunteers at the Colburn assist with visitor services duties, curatorial work with mineral and fossil specimens and educational program support.
