ELKO, Nev. – As the Trail Center nears its Grand Opening on June 2 and 9th annual California Trail Days celebration on June 2 and 3, volunteers are needed for various positions from doing weed control and landscaping work, to greeting visitors or portraying historic characters.
Thursday, May 3, at 6 p.m., Trail Center staff will host a volunteer opportunity brief for anyone interested in volunteering and an appreciation for those who have volunteered in the past. Trail Center staff will provide a brief overview of needed activities and requirements.
Volunteers are needed for everyday operations as well as special events. There will be opportunities to volunteer regularly or occasionally as your schedule permits. Light refreshments will be provided during this informal “get acquainted” event.
The California Trail Interpretive Center, operated by the Bureau of Land Management, is located eight miles west of Elko, at Hunter exit 292. The California Trail Interpretive Center is currently closed in preparation for the Grand Opening which will take place on June 2, 2012 in conjunction with the 9th Annual California Trail Days.
