Volunteers make Bentonsport National Historic District an engaging, pleasurable, and well-maintained place to visit. Bentonsport National Historic District needs volunteers to help in the following ways:
Singers, musicians, actors, and entertainers are wanted to participate in events such as Heritage Day, community music programs held at the Bentonsport church, and to welcome tour buses to Bentonsport
Help water and weed garden at the Stone House community building
Trail maintenance of Richard’s Nature Trail east of the campground, also at the J40 trail head of Bentonsport Timber
Assist with archiving BIA documents, artifacts and items
Conduct visitor surveys
Help with tasks during events, such as setting up and cleaning picnic tables and chairs, sanitizing areas frequently touched, helping visitors locate what they need, picking up litter, and making sure posted signs are understood.
Take photos of people enjoying Bentonsport. A model release form giving BIA permission to use visitor images on the website and in brochures and other public media should be obtained. Some exceptions apply.
