Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Mount Washington Observatory! As a nonprofit, member-supported institution, volunteers are an important part of our operations.
Volunteer opportunities are available at our weather station on top of Mount Washington, and our administrative offices located at our Weather Discovery Center museum in downtown North Conway, New Hampshire. We also occasionally need volunteers to assist with tasks in the field and at offsite events.
Volunteering at Our Summit Weather Station
Thank you for checking in on the summit volunteer program. Operational changes are still playing a factor in determining how and when the program may be reinstated. As we determine a path forward we will be reaching out to all our volunteers. Thank you for your continued support.
Volunteering at Our Administrative Offices and Other Locations
Volunteers support our administrative staff in a variety of ways. In the office, volunteers help with mailings and other administrative tasks. Outside, volunteers help us with landscaping and maintaining our remote instrument sites throughout the White Mountains. Volunteers also provide support at local and regional events. If you would like to offer your time and talent, we invite you to complete a valley volunteer application.
