ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

Fort Raleigh National Historic Site nestled on the Outer Banks of North Carolina seeks enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about the NPS mission and protecting cultural resources.

About Fort Raleigh

The park visitor center holds recently renovated museum exhibits and artifacts dating to the first English settlement attempts in North America and a Freedmen's Colony during the American Civil War. Walking tours and interpretive programs are offered throughout the day and can attract crowds of 60+ visitors.


The position is flexible; however, we ask that you are a local volunteer that will be available for the remainder of the summer season. Horticultural or gardening experience is preferred.
