Volunteer Stewardship Weekends

Keeping a 1930s mining town up and running for over 3,000 visitors a year is no small task. That’s why twice a year we turn to you, our dedicated supporters, for help!


Under the supervision of our facilities director, volunteers will clear debris, stack firewood, touch-up paint, organize, winterize, and help us check items off our to-do list! Volunteers should come ready and able to do manual labor, rain or shine. Bring work clothes, gloves, and rain gear!


Due to liability concerns, participants must be at least 18 years old.
