Volunteering

I know that some Airstreamers volunteer their time at National and State Parks and a variety of other resources. I did some searching and didn't see much on this so I thought I would start a thread on it.

I worked as a California State Park Interpretive Ranger a lifetime ago, an interest that has been rekindled. Vicki is a gamer when it comes to this kind of thing as her father was a Park Ranger when she was growing up and she spent more than one summer as a fire spotter atop fire lookouts accessible only by horseback.

There are many, many volunteer oportunities: interpretive ranger, campground host, helping in stores and kiosks, etc. The best place to find them is at Volunteer.gov - http://www.volunteer.gov .

It would be great to hear from others who have done volunteer activities. Vicki and I have our first gig in October serving as Lighthouse Hosts at Cape Blanco Lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. Come on by!

Cheers,
John

My wife, Vicki, has found us numerous gigs on www.volunteer.gov and other state sites. Right now, we are at the Historic Savenac Nursery in Lolo National Forest, doing all sorts of tasks around the grounds. This was the largest and most prolific nursery for the USFS when operations ceases as the grounds were too small. Education is now the central role. We have been campground hosts at two Indiana state parks as well.

I just tried that link and some of the links from it appear to be broken. For example, I clicked on TX and got a nice list of places that want volunteers. I tried clicking on some of them and all I got was a page listing various parks and their attractions. Some of those parks listed a link to a Volunteer Clearinghouse but all that link does is take you to Google.
