Want to become a volunteer in the Smokies, wear a uniform and help visitors figure out where they are?
Great Smoky Mountains National Park is recruiting volunteers to help staff the new visitor contact station at Clingmans Dome when it opens on Friday, April 1.
Volunteers are needed to assist in educating visitors about the park and to provide recreational and trip planning information and directions to other destinations. You get to walk up to the Dome Tower as part of your shift.
Volunteers will be working alongside Smokies’ employees. Each volunteer is asked to work at least one four-hour shift per week at the information desk and roving the trail to the dome tower. The hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April through November. A five-hour orientation and training sessions will be given this month, on March 19.
