Volunteering in the gardens, a year-around opportunity

Looking for a way to get out, get some exercise and meet some great people, while doing good things in your community? Well, the Ozark Folk Center has an active volunteer program.
 

Volunteers help year-around in the gardens and greenhouse. During the season, they help guide school tours, give crafters breaks in their shops and assist visitors in the craft village. They help set up the stage for music shows, seat visitors and direct traffic in the evening at the Auditorium.

Volunteers become a part of the Ozark Folk Center family! If you would like to check out the volunteer opportunities at the Ozark Folk Center, call 870-269-3851.
