We are looking for volunteers to work as visitor center hosts at the Edge of the Wilderness Discovery Center (EOWDC) in northern Minnesota. The Discovery Center provides a variety of environmental education programs and events throughout the year. The EOWDC also has interpretive displays, area information, a gift shop, trail, fishing pier, picnic area, and more!
The main duties for this position involve greeting visitors and helping with information services. Some light housekeeping and retail sales are also involved and you may occasionally be asked to help the naturalist prepare materials for programs. We ask each person or couple to work three eight-hour daytime shifts per week. The rest of the week you will be free to explore, hike, fish, or canoe in the beautiful lake country of the Edge of the Wilderness and Chippewa National Forest.
The friendly staff at the Edge of the Wilderness Discovery Center offer a fun and relaxing atmosphere to work in. A free campsite with full hook-ups in the scenic Marcell area will be available for persons/couples willing to work three 8-hour shifts per week. A second option is a USFS campsite with electrical hookup only plus potential subsistence reimbursement (negotiable upon available funds).
This opportunity will begin on approximately May 9, 2019, and end between Labor Day and September 30, 2019.
