It all starts with your help
Restoration work at Rock of Ages Lighthouse is completed primarily by volunteers. This work includes carpentry, painting, cleaning, and more.
Many volunteers have specialized restoration or boating skills, but these are not required to be a volunteer. Volunteers must commit to at least 1 week of work and provide their own travel to Windigo Ranger Station.
The priority for the 2023 restoration season is to repair the exterior masonry of the tower and halt water infiltration. A crew of 2-3 contractors will be present onsite for most of the season completing this work. Due to limited space at the lighthouse, volunteer opportunities this summer will be limited to returning volunteers with specific skills to complete this year’s project list.
Types of volunteer positions
We have three general volunteer categories involved in the restoration work
Volunteers for all three positions are required to read the Volunteer Handbook before applying.
