Sponsor a world-class exhibit, special event, or our youth or adult education programs.
Did you know that there are lots of ways to support the National Museum of Wildlife Art? One way is by sponsoring a world-class exhibit, special event, or our youth or adult education programs. Each year, thanks to our generous partners, we attract more than 65,000 visitors to these gatherings, including scores of art and wildlife enthusiasts from our own community and around the globe. Please let us tell you how these philanthropic opportunities can benefit the Museum, our visitors, and you!
For more information on sponsoring Museum exhibitions, programs and events please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or submit an inquiry via our contact page.
In celebration of the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s 35th anniversary, we have planted 70 aspen trees along our Sculpture Trail. These trees, native to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, will augment the Museum’s Greater Yellowstone Botanical Tour and enhance the experience of visitors from near and far for years to come.
This new grove provides a beautiful opportunity to celebrate an important milestone like a birth, wedding, graduation—or to honor the passing of a loved one. An individual aspen tree may be sponsored for $2,000 and can acknowledge an individual, family, or business. Your chosen commemorative name will be displayed on a metal plaque adjacent to the grove as a permanent fixture of the Sculpture Trail.
If you are interested in sponsoring an aspen tree or have any questions about this unique opportunity, please contact Willow Larson by emailing email@example.com or calling 307-732-5414.

Planning your estate and legacy for future generations, including your charitable interests, takes careful evaluation. Consulting with the appropriate professionals can assist you. Discussing your charitable intentions with us can lead to a much better result than going it alone — and will ensure that your gift is used just as you wish. We can provide valuable information about any of the creative giving techniques mentioned in these planned giving pages.
Make a Difference with your Time
A museum volunteer plays a vital role in many aspects of the Museum, assisting with guided gallery tours, information desk, staffing special events, and other “behind the scenes” projects in numerous Museum departments. Whether you live in the valley part time, or are here with us all year long, we can work with you to customize a volunteer experience that will combine your interests and abilities with the Museum’s commitment to inspiring appreciation and knowledge of fine art and humanity’s relationship with nature.
The only requirements for volunteering at the National Museum of Wildlife Art are a passion for wildlife and a love of fine art.
The mission of the volunteer community is to enhance and reinforce the mission and vision of the National Museum of Wildlife Art by:
- Sharing our unique skills, passion and enthusiasm
- Being ambassadors for the organization
- Engaging visitors and forging connections
- Continuing to learn and have fun!
Volunteer Opportunities Include:
Community Events: First Sundays, Plein Air Fest (June), Western Visions (September)
Docent Tours: Docents are volunteers who have been trained in interpretation of the Museum’s collection and lead public tours.
Gallery Guide: Help visitors feel welcome in the galleries.
Fables, Feathers & Fur: Engage kids with the art of storytelling and masterworks from the collection.
