Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park Volunteer Open House and Sign-Up Opportunity


Saturday, February 25th at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park 1:00pm – 3:00pm

The ghost town of North Bloomfield (formerly Humbug) and visitor center will be open for you to meet docents on site to show prospective docents and volunteers what types of volunteer opportunities we currently have at Malakoff Diggins.

Once you are familiar with the great opportunities available to you, there will be Volunteer Sign-Ups on Saturday, March 4th from 9:00am – 3:30pm OR Saturday, March 11 from 9:00 – 3:30pm. Prospective volunteers only need to attend one Saturday block.  The location for sign-ups will be at Empire Mine State Historic Park Docent Room. The Sign-Up session will cover what a “volunteer means to California State Parks” and discussing park policies, procedures and philosophy. We will, as a group, be guided through the hiring paperwork and discuss the benefits of being a State Park volunteer. Since a criminal background check is required prior to working as a State Park volunteer, there will be onsite finger printing “live scan” being conducted during the Saturday sessions. Individuals will need to bring to the sign-up a photo ID and $10 check or cash for the background processing.

Here is a “GOLDEN” Opportunity for you to become a volunteer and/or docent at Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park. There are many new skills to learn while making new friends and sharing in the joy of helping our state parks remain alive.
