Volunteer at the Armstrong Visitor Center
According to Dori Heath, one of the Coordinators at the Armstrong Visitor Center (VC), people that volunteer at the VC stay for years for the joy of sharing the Armstrong Redwoods with people from all over the world. "I have been there for 6 years and if I start the day out of sorts or in a bad mood, as soon as I open the door to the VC, I am happy. I have directed thousands of people through the park, most just stroll through the redwoods, and some go on a challenging hike. No matter where in the park they go, many come back to me happy and so appreciative of their journey. That is why I stay!" Contact Kat Rawhouser at  kat@stewardscr.org  if you are interested.
