Goat Barn Volunteer: Are you interested in helping our park rangers care for the dairy goats at Connemara Farms? These goats require daily care, including feeding, grooming, and cleaning of their stalls. We also share the story of the Sandburg family and their special herd with thousands of visitors each year. Anyone 18 and older who has 4 hours a week to dedicate to the park is encouraged to apply for this volunteer opportunity. Applications can be found here Sandburg Barn Volunteer Inquiry. Attending a virtual orientation, short phone interview, and in-person training are required. Dates for these events will be sent to qualified applicants.
