• Escorting tours at historic sites
• Assisting group outings
• Collecting parking/admission fees
• Performing park office work
• Supervising other seasonal staff
• Responding to patron concerns or needs
• Planning, delivering, and supervising organized recreational, historic or environmental interpretation activities
