Fort Martin Scott Volunteers

Fort Martin Scott is alive and well thanks to the many volunteers who donate their time and talents. Volunteers bring skills, life-experience, and energy to supporting our mission and the work of our staff.

Fort Martin Scott is always looking for enthusiastic individuals who are interested in history and culture. Whether you see yourself guiding tours, acting as a docent or maybe helping out behind the scenes and if you are looking for a rewarding, enriching experience, then volunteering at Fort Martin Scott may be for you.  We are also looking for Park Hosts that live on site in exchange for volunteering 25 hours per week.
