Renfrew is seeking volunteers! 
As we approach our 47th Opening Day, we’re looking for friendly, community-minded people to help us provide great experiences to our visitors during the upcoming season.
Volunteers  at Renfrew Museum and Park assist professional staff with a wide variety of tasks including our popular programs and events, gardening and grounds keeping, tours, interpretation, artifact collections and exhibits, guest engagement, outreach, and so much more!
If you’re interested in learning how you can help us advance Renfrew’s mission, please plan to attend one of our mandatory informational meetings.
The meetings will be held in the Wagon Shed Room located at the Visitors Center with simultaneous livestream online via Zoom.
A recording will be distributed to all registrants so, even if you can’t join us live, you’ll still be well-informed.
This 90-minute session will be led by Renfrew’s administrative staff.
Join our dedicated team of volunteers and help Renfrew fulfill its vision “to be a welcoming and memorable destination where everyone can walk back in time.”
