Volunteers are needed to help get the Manhattan Project National Historical Park at Los Alamos off and running.
At least eight to 10 new volunteers are needed, according to District Interpretive Park Ranger Kirk Singer.
The volunteers would work about three to four hours or more per week working the visitor’s center, or work on building more programs, such as planning guided ranger walks on the planned trails that will skirt through the park, Singer said.
“This is the fun part, because it’s all new to all of us,” Singer said. “This is completely new every day.”
The park was officially established in November 2015. The park preserves three sites where work on the atomic bomb was completed: Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, Tennessee and Hanford, Washington.
Federal officials said in 2015 the park will not glorify war or nuclear weapons, but will tell the story of the three historical sites from a range of perspectives, including the cities in Japan where two nuclear bombs were dropped in 1945.
