New VIP Opportunities

 

The many volunteer opportunities available at Fort Stanwix NM include:

Interpretation - Meet and greet visitors and share the park's stories while working in one of two visitor contact areas, or become a member of the fort's garrison and "bring history to life" by taking part in various 18th century living history programs with the public.

Maintenance - Help out with the daily upkeep of the park. This could involve anything from moving lawns to helping repair a reproduction 18th century cannon!

A general application for all the above volunteer descriptions, as well as the opportunities found below, can be found and printed out here:
