ORGANIZATION: Kings Gap Environmental Education Center

  • 4 people are interested
Cameron-Masland Mansion

We are looking for help on Sundays keeping our historic mansion open to the public! Mansion Docents will meet other volunteers and talk with the public about local history, even leading tours! We will train you in all you need to know! Spend a quiet, fun afternoon indoors helping the public learn.

Each Sunday, 2 volunteers are needed from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM to help visitors and offer a warm welcome. Bring a friend! You can volunteer on only one Sunday, or sign up for multiple dates!

Not sure if you can answer visitor questions? There will be information available both on the history of Kings Gap and some general information at your welcome station table.

To sign up, please email ra-nrspkingees@pa.gov or call 717-486-3799.
