We are looking for volunteers to help with various activities at Sugarloaf Cove, especially Fridays through Sundays during the summer.

Do you enjoy sharing your love of Sugarloaf and the North Shore with visitors? Then becoming a site host would be perfect for you. The main job of the site host is to greet visitors, answer questions and make visitors feel at home.

We are also looking for volunteers interested in helping maintain our trails, host booths at local events, and assist our naturalist with programs.

Sugarloaf  is part of RSVP and Northland Volunteer programs!

Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center is pleased to begin partnering with RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer Program) and Northland Volunteer Center in 2017, to help support and expand our wonderful volunteer base at the Cove.  The RSVP and Northland program works with numerous nonprofit organizations throughout Northeastern Minnesota to meet community needs, preserve the natural environment and provide quality volunteer experiences to enrich the lives of many.  In fact, RSVP is part of one of the largest volunteer organizations in the country, the Corporation for National and Community Services.  This organization includes Americorp, Vista, NCCC, Senior Corp and the Social Innovation Fund.

Through partnering with RSVP and Northland, we will be able to provide our volunteers with benefits such as excess accident and liability insurance coverage, mileage reimbursement for those 55 and over, and recognition events such as Volunteer Week promotions, luncheons, and more.  We would encourage all  volunteers to register with RSVP or Northland, if they are not currently signed up.  To do so, just click on the application form below, complete it online or print it out, and either drop it off at Sugarloaf, email it back to our local coordinator kirsten.ryden@aeoa.org, or mail it to the address shown on the form.  You can contact Kirsten Ryden if you have any questions.
