Volunteers are needed to work in The Nature Nook, the new boutique/ book store located inside the recently opened Welcome & Discovery Center at Lovers Key State Park.
Volunteers in the Nature Nook will embrace the mission of Friends of Lovers Key by selling merchandise and memberships that help to support the daily operations and programs of the park. They will engage with guests, process sales through the POS system, maintain the appearance of merchandise, restock, sell memberships, and maintain the cleanliness of the Nook (dusting, sweeping floors, cleaning jewelry cases).
A minimum of 3 hours per week is required and the majority of work will take place in the Nook. On occasion, volunteers may be asked to work at outdoor events.
Past retail experience, customer service or sales preferred. Experience and comfort level with a POS system desired. Volunteers must enjoy engaging with the public in a respectful, friendly and professional manner, and must be able to problem solve and remain calm under pressure. Ability to lift up to 20 pounds and ability to climb a step stool to hang or retrieve merchandise when needed is required.
All volunteers will receive training about Lovers Key State Park, the new Welcome and Discovery Center, and the merchandise and operations of the Nook. In addition, all volunteers will review training materials from the Florida State Park system.

Volunteers are also needed to assist with our Artist in Residence, Jenny Morley Licht.
Jenny needs assistants to help carry materials and canvases and to help set up pop-up tents in various locations around the park as she plein air paints in the park and instructs in her various art programs throughout the year.
