Volunteers Sought to Lead Lighthouse Tours and Orient Park Visitors

HARKERS ISLAND, NC The Cape Lookout Lighthouse public climbing season begins Tuesday, May 16, 2017. The park is seeking volunteers who can assist with leading tours of the lighthouse and orient park visitors during the summer. The current lighthouse, lit in 1859, serves as a beacon for the region and attracts visitors from around the globe. Come join the Cape Lookout National Seashore team and help the National Park Service and local community tell the story of its importance and place in North Carolina history.

 If this sounds interesting to you, we invite you to join us for an information and recruitment session on Tuesday, May 16, at 6:00 PM at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum (Harkers Island). On hand will be the park superintendent, chief ranger, and chief of interpretation to answer questions and share information about volunteerism at Cape Lookout. This is your chance to learn more about the park and possibly become a National Park Service Lighthouse assistant.

 A light supper will be provided, followed by a brief presentation and discussion and question and answer of what is involved.  We hope to see you there.

 When:  Tuesday, May 16, 2017 – 6:00 p.m.

Where:  Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center
