About

The Lighthouse’s volunteer docents are the personality and welcoming face of the museum.  They bring the history of the lake and the lighthouse to life, engaging visitors with materials and stories, answering questions and providing guidance.  Volunteers that serve in weekly long term roles give visitors a familiar face when they come back, but short term docent roles are also welcome.

The museum sees people from all over the world, including local school groups that have a hands on science station to build a water collection robot and test water samples.

There are times when the museum does not have many visitors and it can be quiet during the day, but there may be some very busy days.  if you enjoy working with larger groups, the 3rd shift of the day may be right for you. A tour bus arrives at 2 pm.

This valuable role is a good fit for people with an interest and education in history, environmental science, and theater, and with personal stories of the lake and coast. Volunteers may sign up for a 90 minute shift, more than once a week if you wish, and back to back to make a 3 hour shift if you prefer.

We need your help sharing our stories and yours, of the Lighthouse, the beautiful Lake Pontchartrain and Pontchartrain Conservancy's efforts to sustain our lake and coast.  Sign up here to be a part of it.
