Experience Volunteerism at Historic Whitesbog Village
The volunteer program of the Whitesbog Preservation Trust plays a vital role in fulfilling the Trust’s mission to restore, protect and enhance the land, historic sites and buildings at Whitesbog and to provide educational materials and interpretive programs about the history, culture and natural environment.
As a volunteer staffed nonprofit, The Trust strives to re-create and preserve the past for visitors, while protecting the Pinelands and the sustainable agricultural resources in use today.
Over 200 Village volunteers collectively contribute thousands of service hours annually. Our volunteers fill many roles, from greeters, guides and museum docents to office assistants, from trail blazers, blueberry field hands and garden assistants to naturalists and native plant guides, and many, many more.
Assignments and work schedules can be arranged Monday through Friday and on weekends to accommodate an individual’s work schedule or availability.
The Whitesbog Preservation Trust welcomes Eagle Scouts and Scout Troops to participate in projects throughout the village. The Old Bog Trail‘s boardwalk, our pond’s teaching platform, and the Driving Trail sign posts were all installed and maintained by scouts. We have several projects pending an Eagle Scout’s leadership and lots of activities waiting for the energy and enthusiasm of local Scout troops.
We encourage Eagle Scouts and local Scout leaders to call our Executive Director at 609-893-4646 for a project tour or visit us on volunteer workdays to help maintain the trails and meet our project leaders; check our Calendar of Events for dates and times.
Students in search of community service hours can visit our Volunteer Job Descriptions page for assignments of interest and call for position availability and an interview with the Executive Director or Committee Chairperson.
