Lead tours of Ebey’s Historical Reserve

Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve is getting ready to open the Jacob Ebey House for a new summer season on Thursday, June 7. Aside from visitors, organizers are looking for volunteer docents who love telling good, true stories and who can’t get enough of magnificent landscapes.

If you would enjoy sharing the treasures of Ebey’s Landing with people from near and far, please consider becoming a Reserve docent. You don’t need a Ph.D in Island history, but you will learn something new every day on the job.

As 2011 docent Al Sherman put it: “I enjoyed being a docent last summer. People from all over stopped by, including other countries, all interested in the Ebey family and the Reserve. Plus, I enjoy the view!”

If interested, join the Docent Training Workshop on Saturday, June 2, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Jacob Ebey House. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Bring a friend along and volunteer together.

For more information, or to reserve your spot, contact ebla_administration@nps.gov or call 678-6084.
