Volunteers may be local or out of town or state:

RV Volunteers commit to one or more 5 week session(s) and stay at near-by  RV sites provided by Tahoe Heritage Foundation.

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 Heritage Days, Gatsby Festival or a clean-up weekend.

All volunteers sign up directly with the Tahoe Heritage Foundation under a Group Volunteer Agreement with the US Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
