If meeting new people while helping to communicate the fascinating history of the West, the Gold Rush and the important heritage of railroading is of interest to you, consider becoming a volunteer for California State Parks, the California State Railroad Museum and/or Old Sacramento State Historic Park! Applications are being accepted now for volunteer positions and a special, drop-in Volunteer Open House is being held on Saturday, September 6. A background in history is not required, just a commitment and willingness to participate in this worthwhile experience. An example of the variety of programs available for trained volunteers include serving as docents or Museum tour guides, participating in hands-on interactive educational programs for school groups, helping with weekend excursion train operations, track construction restoration and maintenance, or even conducting much needed clerical work.
