  • Staffing the park's museum shop
  • Modeling for sculpture classes
  • Helping park staff on concert Sundays


Collections

  • Organizing curatorial storage items
  • Helping the museum specialist clean and restore artwork
  • Researching information on rare museum pieces

Grounds Maintenance

  • Creating flower arrangements for placement around park buildings
  • Aiding grounds staff with lawn care and gardening
  • Repairing and remodeling small park structures and fencing

Natural Resources

  • Clearing the park trails of organic material
  • Collecting debris and trash from parking areas around the park grounds and surrounding road

Opportunity for Summer 2017

We are especially looking for a couple with an RV to volunteer from early August through October 31. Duties include a mixture of assisting with interpretive tours, fee collection, staffing the Eastern Bookstore, and general visitor services. Volunteers each generally work 32 hour a week.

An RV pad with the usual hookups is located a short walk from the Visitor Center in a secluded, pleasant location in a non-public area of the park. Wifi is available. Laundry facilities are located in the park maintenance building.
Background checks are required and fees will be covered by the park.
