DWPC member Kim Field began volunteering at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (DMNS) in 2004 in the anthropology department, working with museum collections. Kim also interviews prospective volunteers and documents the stories of longtime DMNS volunteers.

The Robert L. Akerley Award is given primarily for service in anthropology. Bob Akerley cared for the museum and its contents for over 50 years, becoming part of the Museum’s spirit. Kim is grateful to have called Bob her friend.
