Get Involved at Ruthven Park

We welcome volunteers and new members to join our team. A variety of curriculum-based tours are available for schools and provide experiences not available in the classroom.  

Ruthven Park initially developed by volunteer participation and therefore encourages and appreciates continuing volunteer support. We offer many opportunities to get involved whether individually, as a group or through co-op programs. The unique features of the property provide exceptional historical or environmental learning experiences for children. Free busing continues to be reimbursed for 2017 /2018 school programs within one hour drive of Ruthven. Our education program is supported by the JOY Program, generously funded by The Ron and Nancy Clark Foundation.
