Greeters Sought for the Copake Iron Works Museum and Visitor Center

Friends of Taconic State Park seeks volunteer greeters for the Copake Iron Works Museum and Visitor Center which opens for the season on Saturday, May 25.
No experience is necessary – only an enthusiastic interest in sharing our fascinating local history with visitors from around the world. The main responsibilities of our greeters is to welcome and direct visitors to important destinations around the site (the trail to the Bash Bish Falls, the newly opened Powder Storage Building and the all-important ye-olde porto-potty, to name a few).
Shifts are available from 2pm to 4pm on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays throughout the summer. Volunteer for just a single two-hour shift this summer or more if you wish.
If you haven’t visited the Iron Works yourself, you won’t want to miss viewing an expertly curated collection of artifacts ranging from wooden patterns to plow parts to chisels to fire-proof gaiters to the fascinating Blake Ore Crusher and the intact heat exchanger, all left behind when the Copake Iron Works ceased operation more than 100 years ago.
For more information, contact the Friends at 518-966-2730 (leave a message and you will get a prompt call back) or email jim.mackin@friendsoftsp.org.
