Volunteers needed at Ohanapecosh Visitor Center

Late August and early September are always difficult times for covering staff schedules at our visitor centers, as summer seasonal rangers return to college and their jobs in the public school system. East District Interpreter Julia Pinnix reports that we could really use some help in the Ohanapecosh Visitor Center over the next several weeks. The following dates are ones where our need is most critical:

  • Thurs-Fri 8/ 21-22
  • Mon-Mon, 8/25-9/1
  • Tues-Thurs 9/2-4
  • Mon-Thurs 9/8-11
  • And any days until the close of the season (Oct. 13)!
What we most need are folks willing to help run the front desk. This involves answering questions about the trails and roads and places to visit; and help with the campground system. If there are people who'd like to rove the trails, too, we'd never turn that down! But our really critical need is visitor center desk time.

We're looking for people who know the park, and ideally who are already trained volunteers, but new volunteers are welcome too. We'll provide a volunteer uniform and may be able to arrange housing as well.

If you're available and interested, please contact Julia Pinnix by e-mail or by phone at 360-569-6048.
