Park invites volunteers to donate some time , Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer cca rter@plumasnews.corn The Plumas-Eureka State Park Association is inviting residents to help bring history to life by becoming a docent at the Plumas-Eureka State Park in Johnsville. On April 26 at 10 a.m. the park will host a docent training for new volunteers. With more than 54,000 visits to the park last season, the docents act as guides and information outlets for the many faces that come to see the fascinating museum and state park. According to the association's vice president, Tim Hardie, the volunteers serve a vital purpose in the operation of the park. At one time, the park can need as many as 50 volunteers. The jobs can consist of staffing the museum, blacksmithing, gold panning or tour ,guiding at the various facilities at the museum like the Moriarity House, the restored home of a Eureka Peak miner: However, those jobs are not limited. "We can expand our programs depending on the talent that shows up," said Hardie. Volunteers can dictate how much time they would like to commit to the park. According to Hardie, it could be an hour a month, but the average time is about 40 to 60 hours a season. The museum's season extends from Memorial Day to Labor Day and there is a two-hour screening process that will occur at the training day. There will also be a lunch at the park. "This is for anyone interested in history and in the community," said Hardie. To RSVP for the event, contact Hardie at 836-1995 by April 18.
