Yes! We do ask that young children be accompanied by an adult. We have tasks like picking up sticks on the trails and putting stickers on bags that are easy for younger children to accomplish. We recommend families volunteer together on the first Saturday of the month for Volunteer Service Day from 10 am – 3 pm.
We also work with groups of tweens, teens and college students on service projects. Some past projects include building birdhouses, building boardwalks and trails, making videos about the village history, making a guide to the trails and organizing our event supplies. We are open to new ideas! We are happy to sign volunteer record forms or letters.
One of the best ways is to come out for a Volunteer Service Day on the first Saturday of the month from 10 am – 3 pm. You can meet other volunteers, sign in at the store, meet staff and get a quick orientation to the village and projects. We provide lunch for volunteers (pizza), drinks and we have gloves and tools if they are needed. We recommend wearing clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, sturdy shoes, and extra water. We ask that all volunteers sign a waiver when they arrive and sign in. We track volunteer time for our grant reports.
Volunteers are needed in the garden, on the trails, in the office, the General Store and around the Village and grounds! We also need volunteers to help in the archives and on the computer, with committees, but it helps to meet and greet the group first! If you can’t attend the first Saturday, we recommend you complete the volunteer application and email it and your interest to whitesbogpreservationtrust@
Sure! We love groups, co-workers, clubs and we are happy to talk about ideas for projects you could complete in a few hours. We can also provide a village tour for your group! Shoot us an email at whitesbogpreservationtrust@

Volunteering is wonderful therapy and it fits into my life perfectly! When I’m looking for some quiet time I can work in the gardens at Suningive or create a painting in the gallery. There are so many ways to contribute to keep Historic Whitesbog Village an engaging place. The best part of my time spent there are the people who contribute to the Village operations, both those you see and those you don’t. Everyone’s contributions has value. Its a warm, welcoming, family place that keeps me coming back.
