Louisa, KY – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Yatesville Lake in Louisa, Ky., is planning to fill two on-site volunteer positions available for the spring and summer seasons.
Volunteers should be capable of performing work assignments in both indoor and outdoor work environments. At Yatesville Lake volunteers perform a variety of tasks, including office work and light maintenance duties such as painting, weeding, trail maintenance, and litter pick-up, as well as assisting park rangers with planning and coordinating water safety programs and other events. Dependent upon their skills, preference or training, volunteers may also be assigned other duties.
On-site volunteers are provided with a designated campsite with full hookups including electric, water, and sewer in exchange for a minimum of 25 hours of volunteer work per week. Campers and recreational vehicles must be approved by the Resource Manager in advance. All volunteers must complete a volunteer application and a background investigation.
Volunteering is a rewarding experience that provides the opportunity to contribute to the success of managing our Federal lands. It is an excellent opportunity to travel, make new friends, and learn new skills.
