Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear Looking for More Volunteers

If you’re looking for a way to get involved in the community and give back, there’s an opportunity for you in Leelanau County.

Volunteers with Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear were at the Charles Olsen Farm outside of Glen Arbor Saturday.

They want to get more helping hands.

Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear was started about 20 years ago.

Their mission is to keep the history of the area alive by repairing historic buildings in the area.

From carpentry to gardening and giving tours, there are a bunch of different ways you can volunteer.

And there are opportunities for young adults and seniors.

“We use teenagers help with tours here we also have older folks who have some carpentry skills, that are maybe retired. Some of our most loyal volunteers have gotten older over the years and aren’t quite as capable, so we’re always looking for new folks to step in and help with the process,” says Bill Herd, Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear chairman.
