I volunteer in the Mollusk Division, digitizing information about the freshwater and land snail collection and organizing it, or rather parts of it, as it's quite expansive. I enjoy the position because I feel like I'm doing something somewhat useful. It's a nice break from my classes at the Early College Alliance in Ypsilanti. I find researching the occasionally unclear location data of the samples interesting and challenging. Volunteering gives me endless fuel for conversations with relatives who don't know a mollusk from a fish from a crustacean. The environment here is quiet, and the people of the museum, such as Dr. Lee, are always willing to answer questions about their work, no matter how basic of a level I need to start at.
