Volunteers

Be a part of developing your best field trip! Fort Edmonton Park is building an Educator Advisory Committee to help create the most educational, immersive and fun education programs that a museum can offer. We are seeking 5-7 educators from all fields and subjects to contribute to our current and future field trip experiences.
