• Tour Guide/Interpretation • Visitor Information
Experience, enjoy, and share your enthusiasm about Big Cypress with visitors! We need you to share your knowledge about Big Cypress and the surrounding areas here in south Florida. Give one day a week or a few hours once or twice per week. You will make a difference to visitors from around the world!
Duties: Volunteers will assist the Preserve primarily staffing visitor centers including answering questions, operating computer cash registers to sell items for the Florida National Parks Association, answering phones, and helping visitors learn more about their National Preserve. You may also help with roving boardwalks and collecting statistics.
For an extra challenge be trained and present thematic interpretive programs to Preserve visitors.
Volunteers who will be going out in the field will need a valid U.S. driver's license.
Individuals must be comfortable interacting with a widely diverse public of all ages and interest levels. A willingness to learn and share your knowledge with visitors in a meaningful manner is helpful. While you may answer the same questions many times the smiles you get when you share in helping them discover what they are looking for is rewarding to all involved. A passion for public lands, a taste for adventure, and a sense of humor are also very useful as a volunteer.
