Looking for something fun to do this summer? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work in a museum? Sign up to volunteer for History Colorado’s Summer Teen Volunteer Program! Volunteers will provide customer service to visitors in our atrium Wildflowers, Wild Places summer pop-up installation. Assist visitors as they explore the giant inflatable flowers and help tell stories about Colorado’s public lands and how they came to be. Volunteers will invite visitors to pollinate the flowers using a giant interactive beehive.

About the inflatables: The History Colorado Center commissioned Designs In Air to create three giant, custom inflatable sculptures of Colorado flowers—the columbine, the sunflower, and the claret cup cactus. Each flower will represent a different region of the state: the sunflower represents the plains, the columbine the mountains, and the claret cup cactus the plateau.
