EAST TAWAS, Mich. — Michigan is seeking volunteers to spend a week or two at the Tawas Point Lighthouse as lighthouse keepers.
The lighthouse is at Tawas Point State Park in the northeast Lower Peninsula along the shores of Lake Huron.
The program is open to singles and couples ages 18 and older between March 4 and Dec. 23. Chuck Allen, Tawas Point State Park supervisor, suggests that volunteers be able to lead tours through the lighthouse and tower, and perform housekeeping duties and light maintenance or lawn care.
Volunteers may stay in the newly-renovated lighthouse keeper's quarters for $250 per person, per week in exchange for their volunteer contribution.
Details are available on the state's website.
