Rock Ledge Ranch needs volunteers; orientation March 24 & 26
Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site is seeking adult volunteers for the coming season.
A free orientation will be offered Thursday, March 24, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. or Saturday, March 26 from 10-11 a.m. in the Ranch's Carriage House Education Center.
Volunteers work once a day per week during the summer, dressing up in late 1800s apparel and talking to visitors in the style of those times.
“If you are interested in the history of the Pikes Peak region, like to meet new people, and can volunteer one-half day per week throughout June, July and August, then call the Ranch,” writes Cheryl Catalano, Rock Ledge lead interpreter, in a press release. “At the orientation, you will find out about the training requirements and fulfilling volunteer job opportunities in the museum's four interpretive areas, which include the 1860s homestead, 1880s working ranch and home and 1907 country estate, plus the Heritage Shop.”
The Rock Ledge Ranch Living History Program is coordinated by Colorado Springs Parks. For more information, call 578- 6777.
