As the National Park Service approaches its centennial year, national parks across the country invite neighbors and friends to participate and assist in various ways. "Tumacácori relies heavily on volunteers to meet its mission of preserving, protecting, and interpreting this special place," says Superintendent Bob Love. "Their services come in all forms and work together for a valuable shared purpose." Last year alone, volunteers logged over 10,000 hours in service to Tumacácori's many operations and special events.
On Monday, December 14, Tumacácori will open its doors for a morning dedicated to its volunteers both returning and new. Park staff from all work areas will offer brief programs and updates in their areas of expertise. Join the preservation crew for a look at new test walls and materials. Sample dishes made from new sales items in the park store. Try on new costume pieces recently added to the park's living history programs. There's a piece of Tumacácori to fit every interest, every ability, and every schedule.
The Open House begins with coffee and pastries at 8:30 a.m.and concludes with a potluck lunch at 12:30 p.m. Entrance is free to participants.
