HUNTINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is looking for volunteers to help with operations at Burnsville Lake.

The corps says volunteers will work up to 25 hours per week. Duties include mowing and weeding, cleaning facilities and grounds, staffing a visitors center, tour guide, painting, light carpentry, and general maintenance support.

Those selected as volunteers will be given a free full-hookup campsite at either Bulltown or Riffle Run Campground.

Riffle Run has been operated exclusively by volunteers for several years and has continued to remain open without shorter seasons or reduced services. The corps says volunteers also are needed at the campground for mowing and weeding.

Those interested should call a park ranger at the corps office in Burnsville at (304) 853-2371.
