Description 
The Mount Rogers National Recreation Area celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016. In preparation for this event we are gathering up our historic documents, photos, and stories. An individual volunteer or couple is needed to help with this project. The specific task(s) can be customized to the volunteer’s interest since there are several components to the project. Help is needed with cataloguing historic documents and photos; conducting oral histories from key participants in the creation of the National Recreation Area as well as adjoining rural neighbors; interpreting the gathered information in a series of articles, exhibits, and/or presentations; and serving on the planning committee for the anniversary event. A minimum of a 2 month commitment is desired and housing may be available. The work hours and days would be very flexible since much of the work can be done independently. Housing could consist of either a full hook up campsite for volunteers with their own RV, use of a Forest Service camper, or shared housing in a 3 bedroom/1 bath facility. If housing is provided, we request a minimum of 24 hours of work per week. Reimbursement for the use of your personal vehicle to conduct research is possible.
