Volunteers Needed! Bring History to Life as a Volunteer Educator in Freemansburg

EASTON (July 27) – The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is seeking volunteer educators for its annual Tales of the Towpath student field trips at the Freemansburg Canal Education Center in Freemansburg, Northampton County. Field trips take place on weekdays from September 19 through October 14.

Docents provide hands-on lessons to fourth-grade students from the Bethlehem Area School District who are learning about life along the Lehigh Canal through the D&L’s Tales of the Towpath classroom curriculum. Volunteers receive complete training and are provided with resource materials and 19th-century costumes. Lessons focus on the everyday life of a canal locktender’s family.

Volunteers are not required to work the full four weeks. For more information, contact D&L Director of Education, Dennis Scholl, at 610-923-3548 x225 or dennis@delawareandlehigh.org.
