Come out to Sheldon and walk the trails! Our rovers interact with guests to answer questions, provide directions, and point out wildlife! Sheldon Lake State Park is open daily from 8:00am-5:00pm. If you enjoy talking to people, this opportunity is for you! Preferred volunteer days are Saturdays or Sundays for 2-3 hours. May be asked to assist with outreach events outside of the park.
Preferred experience would include knowledge of flora and fauna indigenous to the Piney Woods region of Texas, experience presenting to groups, and the ability to walk trails or stand for several hours at a time. Shifts will be primarily on weekend days, or as needed. Volunteer will need to coordinate a schedule with park staff.
