Seeking an individual or a couple who are energetic, happy and love to work with visitors. Volunteer hosts provide information and education opportunities for visitors and community members. Volunteers must enjoy working with people, work well with a team, be flexible and be able to work with little supervision. The Hiawatha National Forest provides recreational opportunities to many Upper Peninsula communities and tourists from Cedarville to Sault Saint Marie on the east side to Marquette and Escanaba on the west side and everyone in between. Visitors will enjoy 19 developed campgrounds, 2 rental cabins, 27 boat access sites (includes carry-in sites), 21 day use/picnic areas, 6 lighthouses, 3 islands, and 6 congressionally designated wilderness areas as well as one National Recreation Area. Visitors can walk the beaches or play in the sand and waters of three Great Lakes or fish any of the hundreds of inland lakes that dot the forest, or hike, hunt, drive for pleasure on back roads, pick berries or birdwatch or explore historic islands. Tour the Hiawatha in the autumn to see spectacular foliage that ranges from the palest yellows to vibrant oranges and reds. In winter, visitors can ride for miles on groomed snowmobile trails, or renew body and soul with quiet sports such as cross country skiing, snow shoeing or ice fishing. SPECIAL NOTE: Proof of vaccination for COVID-19 is a condition of this volunteer opportunity.
