If you've wanted to take a month and spend it in nature, this may be the volunteer opportunity for you!
Lincoln State Park
Lincoln State Park is about a 30-minute drive from Evansville, and there is seriously so much to do there. There are plenty of trails for hiking, cabins available for rent, 150 campsites available, plenty of spots for fishing, and more. There is even a really cool fire tower that you can climb and see some pretty incredible views (more on that here). If you enjoy camping and spending time in nature, Lincoln State Park is looking for camp hosts for this summer.
Lincoln State Park Looking for Camp Hosts

In exchange for a campsite, you will volunteer about 20 hours a week for the state park. How fun would that be to spend a month in nature, roasting marshmallows around the fire as a nightly dessert treat?
