GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Great Smoky Mountains National Park is seeking volunteers to help visitors at the information center at Clingmans Dome.

Park officials say volunteers are being recruited to work one four-hour shift per week from April 1 through Nov. 30.

Volunteers will work alongside park employees at the information center, which sits at 6,300 feet in elevation. They will help educate visitors about high-elevation spruce-fir forests, while also providing information about recreation, trip planning and directions.

New volunteers must attend two orientation sessions. The first will be held at the Oconaluftee (oh-kon-oh-LUHF’-tee) Visitor Center training room near Cherokee, North Carolina, on March 20. The second session will be held at the Sugarlands Center training room near Gatlinburg on March 27.

Interested parties are asked to call (828) 497-1906.
