If you are 16 or over consider becoming an education or animal care volunteer. Every semester we have many volunteer positions that are important to making ECHO a leading educational institution and valuable community resource. ECHO Education Volunteers help the public learn about the many animals found here at the Aquarium and in the local environment as well as the fascinating culture and history of the Lake Champlain Basin. ECHO Animal-Care volunteers assist our staff with caring for and managing the more than 70 species of animals in our collection.
Develop skills in working with people of all ages, help interpret our exhibit galleries, discovery spaces, and live animals and help ECHO maintain the commitment to delighting and educating all of our guests. Volunteers help bring the exhibits alive for all of our visitors.
Please consider volunteering!

ECHO is committed to promoting youth engagement, learning, and action. Our youth conference series helps students learn strategies to be effective agents of change in their community and across the globe, network with other student groups, and learn to use resources at ECHO and other institutions. These conferences are focused on high school and college-age student groups.
