This position is a great opportunity! The Virginia Creeper Trail is a 34 mile rail-trail from Whitetop to Abingdon, Virginia. It is located on the former Norfolk & Western Railroad and now hosts over 200,000 bicycle riders each year.
Volunteers are needed to help staff Green Cove Station Visitor Center, an original depot that served as post office, general store, and freight office and is located adjacent to the trail.
Volunteers will serve 6 to 8 hours per day for 2 to 5 days per week. This allows time to experience the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area on your days off. The station is open from April thru October.
Duties include visitor information, selling interpretive materials, and light cleaning. Housing and reimbursement may be available. Volunteers that have worked at Green Cove in the past consider it an excellent experience.
Because of the large amount of visitors to the station, we prefer that this position be handled by a duo of volunteers.
For additional information, please contact Janida Bonham, Volunteer Coordinator at (276) 783-5196 or (800) 628-7202.
HOUSING & AMENITIES Type: Trailer/RV Pads Description: RV sites with full hook-ups are available at Raccoon Branch Campground, Grindstone Campground, Beartree Campground or at the 'Trail Camp'. Wireless internet and laundry are also available.
