Volunteering at Lougheed House offers you the chance to make history come alive for Calgarians and visitors from around the world. In the process you will also meet new people, learn new skills and be part of a great team.
Lougheed House was built in 1891 and we’re planning many exciting events this year. Join our volunteer team and be part of making cultural performances, special events, and more possible! Of particular need is help with event photography, social media, greeting guests, and historic interpretation. Simply note your interest in this year’s celebrations when submitting your volunteer application form (link below).
These volunteers assist our Head Gardener in nurturing and beautifying the Beaulieu Gardens on the 2.8 acre historic estate. If you like digging, planting, weeding, deadheading, watering and socializing, this is for you!
