History Corps Volunteers are sought to work in the History Center to complete the following activities:

- Asset Restoration - Volunteers will follow museum practices to stabilize and in some cases repair and restore historic assets for display, interpretation, or adaptive reuse within the park system.
- Library management - Volunteers will catalog the collection of books that will be used in the research, documentation, and interpretation of park historic assets.
- Artifact preparation - Volunteers will clean, sort, and attempt to reassemble artifacts removed from archeological digs on park sites or relating to park historic assets.
