Posted: Feb. 25, 2020 10:00 am

With warmer weather finally on the way and spring right around the corner, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake needs to fill several volunteer positions.

At this time there are full-time volunteer appointments at the Ray Behrens, Indian Creek and Frank Russell Campgrounds, as well as the M.W. Boudreaux Visitor Center. Positions at the Ray Behrens, Indian Creek and Frank Russell campgrounds are volunteer gate attendant positions.

Volunteers will work in the fee booth registering campers, collecting fees, operating the campground management software and providing information to incoming campers and visitors. Volunteer gate attendants are required to have two people or a couple and work a minimum of 20 hours a week. Volunteers meeting these requirements will be provided with a full service Gate Attendant campsite for the duration of their volunteer appointment.

The volunteer opportunity at the M.W. Boudreaux Visitor Center is a landscape maintenance position. Landscape maintenance includes weeding, deadheading, trimming shrubs and spreading mulch.

All selected volunteers will be required to pass a background check. More information is available from the Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or by email at Information also is available on Facebook under Mark Twain Lake – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
