Help share Mesquite's rich and colorful history with grade school students by volunteering to lead field trips at Mesquite's Florence Ranch and Opal Lawrence Historical Park!

Volunteers will assist students with experiential learning as they tour the homes, envision life on a farm, churn butter, watch quilters at work, and have the opportunity to view and listen to stories about some of the artifacts preserved from the area.

Field trips are scheduled on Wednesdays throughout the school year. Training is provided and will start soon!
