Sutter’s Fort Calls Out for Volunteers

Sutter’s Fort Calls Out for Volunteers

Do you have an interest in Sacramento’s early history? Do you get excited at the idea of recreating pioneer activities like churning butter, making barrels or dressing in period attire? If so, volunteering at Sacramento’s iconic Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) may be just right for you. A new session of docent training classes will soon be available for those interested in helping to interpret pioneer California history to the public. To find out more information and meet current docents, a special Volunteer Open House is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fort located at 2701 L Street in Sacramento.
