As a volunteer at Marshall Gold Discovery, you will complete a comprehensive training program that provides information about the park, its history, and its historic buildings, as well as training on park services, historic interpretation, leading tours and school programs, and historic clothing. Ongoing learning and research opportunities are also available to volunteers on a regular basis. Volunteers are asked to make a commitment of volunteering a minimum of 8 hours per month.
