Volunteer Keeper Training- May
Your friends are volunteering... could you?
Join the shoreline fun! Our lighthouse keepers help to keep Muskegon‘s lighthouse history alive, by opening the tower to visitors from all across the world between May and October.
At these spring meetings, community members and lighthouse enthusiasts learn about becoming a lighthouse keeper, hear some of the maritime history of the area and receive a history booklet with more detailed information that they can study at their leisure to prepare before volunteering.
Volunteering is most importantly, *FUN* in a very low key, relaxed environment, and it offers you a great way to make new friends, meet new people and enjoy quality time in our tower on the lakes.
A lighthouse tour will be offered at 7 pm, following the brief overview of training and you can choose to stay or climb another day. Note: this very initial training simply provides you resources and a warm welcome to the organization. You can sign up for shifts then, or at a later time. At your first shift we will provide you with a hands on, deeper in-depth training given by Lighthouse Conservancy staff and experienced volunteers who will be working with you on your first shift.
