Pottawatomie Lighthouse Museum Docents

Volunteers for the Lighthouse Museum Docent program get the unique privilege of bringing history to life while volunteering to stay at and take care of the Pottawatomie Lighthouse on Rock Island, Wisconsin.  As part of this program, volunteers stay for a week at a time in the Lighthouse and give tours 7 days a week from 10 am to 4 pm each day.  This program operates from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day each year.  With no electricity and no indoor plumbing, this is quite the volunteer experience.  Interested volunteers are encouraged to read the Guidebook for Docent Tours, which outlines further details of this program.  All volunteer applications for this program are due by December 31 each year for the following year.
