Volunteer at Ruthven Park!

UPDATE – There will be a Volunteer Information Night in the Coach House at Ruthven Park on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 at 7:00pm. Please join us to learn more about volunteer opportunities at Ruthven Park and to directly ask our CAO Marilynn Havelka your questions.

Volunteers founded The Lower Grant River Land Trust Inc. and continue to play a vital role in our organization.

Volunteers can perform a variety of tasks and bring experience, expertise and specialized talents to the site. Some of the jobs performed may include conducting tours, assisting with education programs, maintaining flower gardens, grass cutting, collections and committee work, housekeeping, research and outreach at community events.

In return, you will meet new friends, learn new skills, gain hands-on experiences and contribute to the success of the Ruthven operation.

If you are retired, come and revive or share your skills.

Students will be exposed to a working environment while gaining new skills and have the opportunity to use their experiences and references on job resumes.  We can accommodate those who are already working by providing flexible schedules and tasks which offer a change from your routine day-to-day responsibilities.

Click here to access the volunteer application.

Applications can be emailed, faxed, mailed or dropped off at the Gate House.

Staff will follow up with you to discuss volunteer opportunities.

Individual volunteers and organized groups are always welcome!
