Ways to help

Behind the Scenes Volunteer

If you’d rather work behind the scenes, you can help with educational programs, story telling/crafts, mailings, facility and/or yard maintenance, or other jobs that help us keep the Point Betsie Lighthouse a treasured destination for locals and visitors. Grounds volunteers may help set up for events, pull weeds, trim shrubs, or sweep sidewalks.
