Whiskeytown Seeking Volunteers
Contact: Phyllis Swanson, (530)242-3421
The National Park Service is searching for nine new Volunteer Information Specialists who will work in the Visitor Center at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. Many people who visit Whiskeytown know little about the park and its resources and they often miss opportunities for enjoying the park. Our volunteer specialists educate visitors about what the park has to offer and help to make their visit fun and successful. In addition, volunteers sell park passes and bookstore items.
The benefits of volunteering include learning a great deal about Whiskeytown and its resources through on-the-job training, developing new skills while serving the community, making new friends and meeting interesting people from all over the world, and enjoying the fabulous view from the Visitor Center.
The Park Service is looking for committed individuals who can work one four-hour shift per week. Volunteers must be able to learn how to operate a cash register and credit card machine. Volunteers will be selected based on their demonstrated ability and sincere interest in helping Whiskeytown serve park visitors and protect park resources.
If you would like more information about volunteering at the Visitor Center, call the park Volunteer Manager at (530) 242-3421. Applications may be obtained from the park website at http://www.nps.gov/whis/supportyourpark/volunteer.htm or in person at the Visitor Center.
