Get Involved at Ruthven Park
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.
Ruthven Park National Historic Site offers a beautiful Coach House for Rental for your special event, wedding or Social & Business Functions. Enjoy the beauty of the grounds they have been used for many movies and film shoots.
