Cultural History Volunteers Needed for the Walker Ranch Homestead

Cultural History Volunteers Needed for the Walker Ranch Homestead

Application deadline Thursday, March 14. Training date Sunday, April 14.

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County Parks & Open Space is recruiting cultural history volunteers. Volunteers will learn fun and easy living history demonstrations to share at special events and weekday school field trips at the Walker Ranch Homestead, an 1880s-era ranch in the mountains.

Volunteers dress in period costume, cook on a wood stove, give tours, chop wood, make shingles, churn butter, and do laundry with a washboard. This is a great opportunity for families to get involved in a volunteer activity together.

For those whose schedules allow, there are also opportunities to help with special presentations for school groups that visit the ranch on field trips.

The application deadline is Thursday, March 14. Training date is Sunday, April 14. For more information and to apply, please visit the Volunteer Opportunity web page, Walker Ranch Living History Demonstrator or contact Sheryl Kippen at skippen@bouldercounty.org or 303-776-8848.
