State parks need volunteers

Behind every great state park is a great team of volunteers who help it operate. Jack London and Sugarloaf Ridge state parks are recruiting for new volunteers and will be holding volunteer trainings in August and September. The commitment is only four hours per month and you’ll receive a park pass for your service.

Volunteers are needed to work in the entrance stations and visitor centers, lead tours, work as docents in the museum and cottage, drive golf carts, play piano, help with administrative/office duties, work in park and trail maintenance and assist with special events. No experience required.

Jack London is operated by Jack London Park Partners and Sugarloaf Ridge is operated by Team Sugarloaf. These parks receive no state funding so they rely on their volunteers to help operate the parks.

Trainings are specific to each park.

Saturday, Aug. 12, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., for Sugarloaf Ridge State Park

Saturdays, Sept. 9 and 16 (two-day training), 9 a.m.-5 p.m. both days, for Jack London State Historic Park

Please note: These training sessions do not include trail patrol.

For information and to sign up, contact Susan St. Marie at or 938-4827.
