Historic Michigan Lighthouse Looking For Keepers For 2 Week Stays

One of Michigan’s historic lighthouses is looking for volunteer keepers to stay for 2 weeks during the 2020 year. The Michgan DNR is accepting applications to their lighthouse keeper program in Tawas, Michigan. The location is very popular and the lighthouse sits on a hook shape Peninsula at the edge of Tawas State Park.

The only cost is $75 dollars and that’s for training and also your stay in the 1876 built apartment for 2 weeks. Sounds like an awesome time for those of you who would love this kind of experience. This is a chance for those of you who love history, beautiful scenery and a chance just to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

The DNR says that up to 4 people can apply at the same time. So that means if you want to take a group of friends, or family to share the experience this is your chance. However applicants must realize that this ISN’T a vacation. Applicants will work afternoons for 6 days a week. However you get the mornings and evenings for yourself. There’s plenty of places to check out and tons of areas to walk and explore.

The program runs from May through October and those of you who are looking to apply can get more information here > lighthouse keeper program
