Volunteers sought for Werowocomoco

The Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail, a branch of the National Park Service, is looking to recruit Community Volunteer Ambassadors to dedicate a year of service to build enduring relationships between their national parks and local communities, particularly in Gloucester.

Volunteers are needed to help identify native plant species at Werowocomoco, an indigenous archaeological site located on the north side of the York River in Gloucester. They are also needed to help engage park visitors in the Chesapeake Bay’s history, cultural heritage and environment. Werowocomoco was acquired and protected by the National Park Service as part of the Chesapeake Trail in 2016.
