Sutter's Fort Calls Out for Volunteers!

Sutter's Fort Calls Out for Volunteers!

If you are passionate about California’s fascinating history and would enjoy sharing and demonstrating the compelling stories from the mid-1800s, consider becoming a volunteer at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park!  

Applications are now being accepted for volunteer positions this summer and comprehensive training is provided. A background in California history is not required and a variety of positions are currently available.   For instance, you might choose to serve as a docent -- dressed in period attire of course -- to present the events and times of the John Sutter and his New Helvetia settlement.  Or, you might choose a role behind-the-scenes at the historic site.   Either way, you’re encouraged to get involved in this worthwhile volunteer effort.
