Docents being led on a guided tour at Traveler’s Rest State Park, Lolo, Montana. This is currently the only archaeologically verified campsite along the Lewis and Clark Trail.
2014 Fall field trip to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center in Great Falls, MT.
Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you like learning about local history? We are seeking new volunteers to join our team! The Sacajawea Center relies on the support of volunteers to keep the Interpretive Center open daily throughout the summer. Volunteers sign up for a 4-hour, weekly shift or join our substitutes list and fill in when they can. Volunteers greet visitors, collect admission fees, sell items from our small gift shop, provide information about the Lewis and Clark Expedition, explain what we have available onsite, and answer any questions visitors may have. Without their dedication the Center would not be able to stay open and provide information to the 4,500 visitors who come through the door each season.
Training begins Monday, April 10th from 1pm-4pm in the Learning Center at the Sacajawea Center and will continue for several Mondays in April. To keep things fun and interesting training sessions include guest speakers and a field trip to a nearby point of interest.
Volunteers receive a name tag and polo shirt to wear during their shift and we have monthly meetings throughout the summer to provide up-to-date information. At the end of the season there is a celebratory dinner that includes gifts and recognition of volunteers. We also try to take an overnight field trip each fall, to an interpretive or educational center in the region. If you are interested in join us as a summer volunteer or need more information please call the office at (208) 756-1188 or click over to the Contact Us page and send a message.
