The Volunteer Program at Golden Spike
Volunteers contribute thousands of hours to Golden Spike National Historic Site each year. Retired couples, individuals, school groups, scouts, clubs and organizations - people just like you - donate their time and efforts to provide essential services at Golden Spike's visitor centers, with the cultural resource specialist, locomotive operations, and with the re-enactments. Our volunteers also contribute time upkeeping trails, eradicating invasive plants, cleaning park grounds, and assisting with park research projects.
Volunteers may donate several months at a time or perhaps a few hours. If this
sounds like something you may be interested in, please read
During the summer months including late spring and early fall, Golden Spike NHS has limited opportunities for volunteers to stay on site. We
have dedicated trailer pads with hook-ups in the headquarters area, as well as a few trailers avilable for volunteer use. Volunteers who
apply through the Student Conservation Association or AmeriCorps program will have preference with provided trailers.
During the winter Golden Spike has a huge need of volunteer help connected with the locomotive maintenance. The "off" season is a great time for us to organize and prepare for the busy summer.
