    History of Snug Harbor








Snug Harbor is a complex and diversified place with a myriad of activities, programs and events to offer the community. Volunteers are essential to our operations. We are always looking for willing people of all ages and skill sets to help us accomplish our goals. We need people to hoe the gardens, sell tickets, help with administrative duties; people who can talk about good nutrition, explain composting techniques, people who appreciate the environment, or love history and grand old buildings.

With an 83-acre campus, twenty-eight historic buildings and countless program and events taking place all year-round, we depend on our army of dedicated volunteers. We’d love to have you join us. If none of the categories listed here appeal to you, contact us anyway. We can always find some way for people who are willing to participate in an inviting and rewarding way.
