Plumas Eureka State Park needs you

Why volunteer at Plumas Eureka State Park? Come to the park Saturday, April 27, for a workshop at 10 a.m., and find out.

This workshop will provide the tools needed to expand Plumas Eureka State Park’s assets to visitors of all ages this summer.

Are you awed by the beauty of this spectacular area? Do you enjoy showing people around our area? Have you ever found the “Hidden Gem of the Lost Sierra”? If you answer yes to any of these questions, you are ready to volunteer at the park this summer.

If you come to the Park Museum on April 27 with your driver’s license, you will receive a one-on-one tour of volunteerism Plumas Eureka State Park-Style.

Orientation by Park Ranger Tim Quandt will provide the basics to a volunteering career, which allows you to become an ambassador for visitors to guide their experience to explore all the park has to offer.

Between 10 a.m. and noon, the doors to the park will open for new volunteers to join the regular volunteer group for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. prepared by the Plumas Eureka State Park Association directors.

While enjoying lunch, experienced volunteers will receive awards for last season’s hours of work: 3,000-plus hours donated to aid the Parks Department in showcasing this park to 50,000-plus visitors in 2018.

From 1:30 to 3 p.m., attendees will be able to join tours led by park experts of the assay office, wood working shop, sneak-a-peek into the black smith shop, or stroll back to 1893 Moriarty House and witness life without the modern conveniences.

Plumas Eureka State Park Association needs your able assistance to complete its goals to support the interpretive and educational programs at the park.

Call 249-4288 for more information and to RSVP to allow for enough food or get more information at www.plumas-eureka.org.
