RV - VIP opportunity
Do you enjoy learning and interpreting history? Have you ever interpreted American History that included the rich and diverse stories of the French, Spanish, Africans, or Native Americans? Do you know what a Creole is? We invite you to join our team in one of the most special places in the South. Natchitoches, on the Cane River, is home to more than 300 years of history; settled in 1814, is the oldest settlement in the Louisiana Purchase.
Cane River Creole National Historical Park consists of two 18th century French Creole plantations. Both plantations are recognized as Bicentennial farms. Cultural resources abound at the park; several original buildings can be found at both sites and we have some of the best creole architecture in Louisiana. Interpretive opportunities include a house tour, grounds tours, and roving interpretation, and possibly off-site programming.
Volunteers would be selling items in the Eastern National bookstore, running a cash register and credit card machine, stocking brochure racks, cleaning visitor services area, meeting and greeting the public.
We require a 3 month stay and a 32 hour work week. We have two trailer spaces on site with electricity and water available. We also provide an onsite washer and dryer. Natchitoches, Louisiana has amenities such as medical services, grocery, restaurants, shopping, and cultural attractions and is centrally located in northwestern Louisiana. We are four hours from New Orleans and Dallas- three and a half hours from Houston and two hours from Cajun country of south Louisiana.
If this sounds like a great opportunity we would enjoy hearing from you.
