Volunteers-In-Parks (VIPs) are an important part of Weir Farm National Historic Site. Each year we benefit from the efforts of over 100 VIPs who assist us with a variety of projects and tasks; including garden and trail maintenance, visitor services and interpretation, historic buildings maintenance and preservation, and archival letter transcription.
