Tallac leads tour for potential volunteers
The Tallac Historic Site on Highway 89 at the south end of Lake Tahoe will hold an open house on July 6 for interested volunteers of all ages.
Volunteers are needed for tasks such as ticket and museum sales, restoration work, computer logging of artifacts and property maintenance. Individuals may work as little as a few hours a week or for several days a week. Assistance is needed particularly on Saturdays and Sundays.
The Tallac Historic Site contains three wonderful summer homes built by millionaires in the early part of the last century. They are set in the midst of one of the rare stretches of old growth forest that has never been logged. The homes, owned and managed by the U.S. Forest Service, are being restored with volunteers doing the work.
Those interested should show up at 5:30 p.m. at the site’s Baldwin Museum for a quick, guided tour and an explanation of the projects.
