I have in the past done volunteer work in the local state museum
paleontology dept. & found it a rewarding experinece.  Also you learn
heaps about the taxon you are working on, you get to handle the
specimens as well.

Here in Australia there are not many dinosaur fossils - I am referring
to plaeontology specimens in general.
