Visitor Center & Special Events Volunteering

Visitor Center and Special Events volunteers can help out three different ways.

Grounds Maintenance/Gardening
Calling all green thumbs! The grounds and garden need maintenance early spring to late fall. Rake, plant, weed, and help create a welcoming landscape for all visitors!


Maple Festival
Take part in Vermont’s historic Maple Weekend and lend the MFFC staff a helping hand! Volunteer for a few hours mixing batter, flipping sausage, or serving pancakes. At the end of your shift you will enjoy a heaping plate full of the delicious breakfast you helped create.
