The open house will be set up in the main gallery of the museum, (6717 Highway 12 West, Lolo Montana) with staff, AmeriCorps and volunteers on hand to share stories about Travelers’ Rest and the volunteer opportunities. The event will have a casual format, where potential volunteers and those interested in the park can drop in anytime between 10 am and 7 pm to learn about what they can do here..
