Typical Volunteer Opportunities:Morven’s volunteer corps is critical to our success. Our volunteers collectively contribute hundreds of service hours annually. It is a great way to learn more about Morven and the history of New Jersey while meeting new people and caring for a National Historic Landmark. Morven is always looking for enthusiastic, outgoing individuals to volunteer as docents/guides. Garden volunteers work alongside Morven’s horticulturists tending the historic grounds. Volunteers lend a helping hand to Morven’s staff for events, setting up before and assisting guests during events such as Morven in May, Fourth of July Jubilee, and the Festival of Trees in December. Volunteers also assist in a variety of behind the scenes work, including mailings and office tasks. Many volunteers have helped Morven’s efforts in a variety of ways, including proof-reading, computer editing and design, woodworking, and more. Volunteers enjoy a flexible schedule and are welcome any day of the week.
