Volunteer Workdays & Events 2017

Museum Hosting at the Appalachian Forest Museum & Fort Hill

Weekends from April – October

The Arc operates Museums and Visitor Centers for the public at both the Highlands Nature Sanctuary and Fort Hill. Museum Hosts greet visitors, help orient them to hiking trails in the entire Arc System, and interpret the outstanding natural history of their sites. No experience is necessary, training can be done on site. Museum hosts work weekends during the April through October Museum season, covering shifts that range from 5 – 7 hours a day – usually working an average of one or two days a month. Lodging is available. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Kayla Hanning at services@arcofappalachia.org or 937-365-1935

Volunteer Day: Cave Road Annual Tree Trimming

Saturday, August 5, 2017

In a sincere effort to give back to the Township and the surrounding community – who together give us so many services and support – the Arc carefully trims the annual growth of vegetation by hand along Cave Road. This enables emergency vehicles, school buses, neighbors, and visitors to safely and easily pass through the area. Because we rely on volunteers, we can do this work by hand as opposed to the more time-efficient but more mechanical means employed by road crews. The result? Cave Road is able to retain its time-honored pristine beauty for all of us to enjoy! More Information…
