Thames River Heritage Park Seeking Interactive Tour Interpreters

Thames River Heritage Park seeks interpreters for its public and group boat tours during the 2021 tour season. The Park’s tour season begins on Friday, July 2 and ends on Sunday, September 12, 2021. Interpreters must be excellent storytellers, enjoy and care about people, and possess superior communication skills and enthusiasm for the Park’s partner heritage sites and the history of the Thames River estuary. Interpreters also need to be able to create a warm and welcoming environment for guests, capture their attention, and make them feel like they are part of the ongoing story of the heritage of the Thames River. 
 
Volunteer interpreters are most welcome. A stipend will be made available to non-volunteer tour interpreters. The tours run for 75 minutes. 
 
Thames River Heritage Park makes the heritage and culture of the Thames River region vivid and relevant to all. The Park connects people, communities, institutions, sites and stories to the historic waterfront and natural landscape of the Thames River Estuary. Thames River Heritage Park Foundation promotes, supports, and sustains the Thames River Heritage Park - a collection of heritage sites linked by water which capture the history and culture of life along the Thames River that includes: Avery-Copp House, Bill Memorial Library, Ebenezer Avery House, Garde Arts Center, Fort Griswold Battlefield State Park, Fort Trumbull State Park, Hempsted Houses, Ledge Light, Lyman Allyn Art Museum, Monte Cristo Cottage, Nathan Hale Schoolhouse, Submarine Force Museum & Library / USS Nautilus, and Subvets World War II National Memorial East.
