Volunteer Tour Guides and House Docents Needed at the Agricultural Heritage Center

Application deadline is Sunday, March 4.

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County Parks & Open Space is now accepting applications for volunteer tour guides and house docents at the Agricultural Heritage Center, 8348 Ute Highway 66 in Longmont.

Volunteer tour guides and farmhouse docents teach visitors at the Agricultural Heritage Center about the agricultural history of Boulder County between 1900 and 1925.

Tours at the farm showcase historic barns, granaries, a silo, milk house, garage, a working blacksmith shop, farm animals (during the busy season), and a 1909 farmhouse decorated with furnishings from the period.

Volunteers are needed primarily on weekdays to lead tours for school groups, but house docents are also needed for weekends and special events. House docents focus on greeting visitors and giving tours of the farmhouse.

Application deadline is Sunday, March 4. Training takes place Friday, March 23, from 9 a.m.– 4 p.m.
