Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that is tucked away in a unique niche of southern Tennessee? Apply for a position at Meriwether Lewis National Monument Milepost 385.9, on the Natchez Trace Parkway, in Hohenwald, TN. For information about the Parkway, please visit www.nps.gov/natr .
This is one of the premier destinations on the Natchez Trace Parkway, as it is where the famed American explorer and leader of the Lewis and Clark Expedition Meriwether Lewis died and was laid to rest. Visitors are typically interested in Meriwether Lewis, recognize him from the Corps of Discovery, and often treat their visit to the site like a pilgrimage. There are numerous opportunities for Interpretation and this site is perfect for history lovers.
RV Hosts: in exchange for 32 hours per week (24 hours each if a couple), the volunteer (VIP) will receive a private RV site with full hook-ups, if needed. We require a three-month commitment (and occasionally a two-month commitment for VIPs with previous Natchez Trace Parkway VC experience).
Local volunteers: a minimum commitment of two days per month.
***Volunteer Vaccine Attestation Requirement*** Volunteers whose service requires their regular presence in NPS buildings or government vehicles must complete a Certification of Vaccination form. If they have NOT attested to being fully vaccinated, they must also possess and present a negative COVID-19 test result from within the 3 days immediately prior to the date of entry. They must also maintain completed form (and test result, if necessary) on their person for the duration of their volunteer term and present it to the volunteer manager or volunteer supervisor, as needed. They must also comply with all public health protocols in place at the Natchez Trace Parkway.
