National park volunteer force recruiting members

Written by 

From history to hiking, volunteer opportunities are available to help the Great Smoky Mountains National Park make the 2017 season a success.

• The park is recruiting volunteers to help park visitors enjoying trails near the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, with a training scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, April 7, at the visitor center. Volunteers typically work one four-hour shift each week from mid-April through mid-November, walking the Oconaluftee River Trail, Mountain Farm Museum and fields along Newfound Gap Road near the visitor center. They inform park visitors about park regulations protecting wildlife and assist with traffic management while elk are in the fields. They also tell visitors about the area’s cultural and natural resources.
