Volunteer

We are always looking for people who possess our passion for the Rock of Ages Lighthouse.

During the summer months, work crews routinely take trips to the lighthouse. Our organization covers the cost of housing at Isle Royale National Park and supplies transportation to and from the lighthouse. Work at the lighthouse includes:

  • painting
  • metal work
  • cleaning
  • carpentry

Work trips do involve heavy lifting and climbing stairs. Please read the volunteer handbook before applying.

2020 restoration Season Cancelled

On April 10, 2020 the Rock of Ages LPS Board of Directors made the necessary decision to cancel the 2020 lighthouse restoration season. This decision was made due to 1) the risk that the spread of COVID-19 poses for volunteers who would be working in an extremely remote area far from medical care and 2) COVID-19 related disruptions that have made it logistically impossible to provide adequate supplies, equipment, and transportation for a successful restoration season. All restoration work slated for the 2020 season has been rescheduled for the summer 2021 season.

You do not need to travel to the lighthouse in order to volunteer
