Volunteers for Park Clean Up Day, April 27, 2013
Volunteers gathered on the Memorial Building steps after a successful "Park Clean Up Day."

Volunteer at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park

You can learn new skills, teach others, stay active, and involved. Volunteers at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace help preserve and maintain the diverse cultural and historical resources of the park for today's visitors, as well as helping to preserve the same resources for future generations. Volunteers can play a vital role in making sure visitors enjoy their experience in the park by helping out. The park has several areas where volunteers can make a difference in the park's operation and visitors satisfaction:

  • Interpretation - staff information desk and Memorial Building, greet visitors, answer questions.
  • Living History Interpretation - assist with special interpretive programs and events throughout the year (early American crafts and demonstrations)
  • Gardener - care for the historical garden at Lincoln Boyhood Home

Volunteer opportunities at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace are as diverse as the cultural and historical resources of the park.

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Special! Someone with a green thumb to help in the park's garden at Knob Creek during the spring and summer months
  • Interpretation - staff information desk in Visitor Center and Memorial Building

To volunteer call the park's Volunteer Coordinator Ranger Craft at 270-358-3137
