Review and meet minimum qualifications outlined in the Plumas-Eureka Volunteer Duty Statement.

Plumas Eureka State Park Association (PESPA) is actively seeking new volunteers to support its interpretive and educational programs at Plumas-Eureka State Park. Volunteers are an essential element to the success of Plumas-Eureka State Park programs, and the varied interests and talents of PESPA volunteers are the spark that brings the Park’s gold rush mining history to life.

As a volunteer, you can support Plumas-Eureka State Park in a number of ways depending on your interests and the time you have available. Man the museum store or serve as a Park greeter; support behind-the-scenes initiatives, such as community outreach or research and preservation work; or become a knowledgeable docent leading tours of the Assay Office, Moriarity House, or historic gold rush site. The choice is yours. PESPA provides the training and support necessary for every volunteer to feel comfortable in whatever role they choose.

Summer season at Plumas-Eureka State Park begins May 25, 2024.

Volunteer Meeting: TBD
