Volunteer at Jack London State Historic Park

Can you play the piano, welcome guests or drive a golf cart?|

The essential team of volunteers who help operate Jack London State Historic Park are looking for more members. It offers a chance to meet visitors from all over the world and share the legacy of Jack and Charmian London.

The park needs volunteers to fill a variety of roles:

•Staff the entrance station

•Work in the bookshop/visitor center

•Act as docents in the museum, cottage, and at Wolf House

•Conduct tours

•Play piano in the museum

•Patrol the trails on foot or horseback

•Lead hikes

•Work in park and trail maintenance or historic orchard restoration

•Drive golf carts

•Assist with special events

•Help with administrative/office duties

No experience is required, just a willingness to learn and the desire to share that knowledge with visitors from near and far. The time commitment is only four hours per month. Volunteers receive a park pass in acknowledgment of their service.

The training is scheduled on Fridays, April 1 and 8 (two-day training), from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days, for all assignments except trail patrol and hike leaders.

For information and to sign up, contact Susan St.Marie at sstmarie@jacklondonpark.com. Space at the training is limited.

Volunteers play an essential role in operating the park. Jack London State Historic Park is operated and funded by Jack London Park Partners, the first private organization to be entrusted with management of a state park on behalf of the people of California.
