Volunteering

 Volunteer Blacksmiths

Volunteers receive many benefits from their work at Grey Roots.  Most importantly, they have the satisfaction of seeing Grey County’s history preserved, shared and enjoyed through their efforts. Volunteers participate in learning workshops and seminars, meet new people and make new friends, and share their unique talents with thousands of people who visit the Museum and Archives every year. With 20 hours of completed service, volunteers visit Grey Roots free of charge, receive discounts in the gift shop and are eligible for other benefits at partner sites. Volunteers celebrate their successes at volunteer appreciation events!

There are 18 different volunteer positions at Grey Roots, from Junior Interpreters to Archives assistants to site maintenance support! Each summer in Moreston Heritage Village, costumed volunteers depict life as it was in Grey County long ago. All Grey Roots volunteers play important roles in preserving and sharing our heritage.
