Volunteer Opportunities

Docents meet and greet visitors to the Keeper's House on weekend afternoons.


Are you interested in local history? How about New York City history? Do you love walking the Aqueduct Trail?

Come learn about being a docent at the Keeper’s House in Dobbs Ferry. The Friends of The Old Croton Aqueduct will answer questions and provide plenty of background material, including an overview of the history of clean water in New York City. Help promote an understanding of the role Westchester’s natural resources played in the development of New York City, and help promote New York State’s thinnest State Park!
