This is your opportunity to join our team of dedicated volunteers who rove the trails, interact with visitors, host at the visitor center and in general contribute to the inspiration, education and enjoyment of park visitors. Docents activities may include leading school group tours, living history demonstrations, guided hikes, and more. Volunteer Trainings are every year in early spring.
