Volunteers are vital to the work we do in our mission to preserve and protect the cultural heritage and natural history resources of the area, including the Tallac Historic Site and the Taylor Creek Visitors Center.

Volunteers assist with restoration, interpretation, and education activities:

  •      Greeting and assisting visitors
  •      Museum docent
  •      Conducting tours and assisting with living history programs
  •      Working in the Shops at the Baldwin Museum and the Visitors Center
  •      Museum related activities including accessioning
  •      Gardening
  •      Caring for lawn, grounds & trails
  •      Preservation, restoration, and maintenance of strutures, grounds, artifacts and machinery
  •      Blacksmithing and demonstrating traditional crafts
  •      Sewing and costuming
  •      Helping with the Gatsby Festival and Gatsby Tea
  •      Administrative assistance

There is really something for everyone at any level of skill or interest!  All ages are welcome.

Some volunteers commit to a 5 to 6 week session and stay at a nearby RV park.  Local volunteers work one or two days a week throughout the summer season.  Others have the opportunity to volunteer for a single task or event, such as Gatsby or a clean-up weekend.
All volunteers sign up directly with the Tahoe Heritage Foundation and volunteer as a group for the US Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
