Bonneville Lock and Dam seeks volunteers

Published Jan. 7, 2014

PORTLAND, Ore. – Would you like to meet people from all over the world and teach them about historic places, or help protect our natural resources?  Bonneville Lock and Dam needs volunteers on weekends during the spring, fall and winter months to help run its visitor centers, powerhouse display gallery, bookstore and Natural Resource program.

It’s an opportunity to learn more about topics like Pacific Northwest salmon and how Bonneville Dam makes electricity; help rangers maintain and protect parks, trails and other facilities; or work in retail services at the Discover Your Northwest bookstore.

If you are dedicated, responsible and at least 16 years old, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn new skills and share those you already have.  Training is provided, and mileage can be reimbursed.

If interested, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Claudia Round at 541-374-4019 or  Prospective volunteers will need to complete an application, authorize a background check, provide two personal references and participate in an interview.

Bonneville Lock and Dam is located off Interstate Highway 84 at Exit 40, and off Washington State Route 14 at Dam Access Road.  The project is managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and is a National Historic Landmark.  For more information, visit
