Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is looking for outgoing and friendly volunteers who are interested in working with the National Park Service helping visitors plan their adventure in the park. In many parks, the first contact visitors have with park staff is in the Visitor Center. This contact often forms a lasting impression of the park and surrounding public lands, shaping the quality of the park visit.
Duties will include answering inquiries from the general public, assist in trip planning to park areas, help with opening and closing of the visitor center, sales of gift shop items, assisting with special events, and other duties.
Must be able to commit to 4.5 hours/week. There are morning or afternoon shifts available to choose from. The Visitor Center is open 7 days a week.
There will be an orientation on Feb 10, 2018 for new Visitor Center Volunteers. For more information and to apply, please go to https://www.volunteer.gov/results.cfm?ID=16252
