You’ll have the Best Time in History!

Imagine experiencing the life and excitement of another era.  Are you interested in the past and want to share that passion with others?  Nebraska State Parks offers opportunities to re-enact another time in life.  Become a living history demonstrator in one of our State Historical Parks.  Each State Historical Park has different programs throughout the year where they need assistance from the public to re-enact events in Nebraska History.

From smelling the gunpowder or the aroma of a cooking fire, to seeing the traditional dress and feeling the coarseness of the wool uniforms, to hearing the booms of the cannons and seeing how people lived in the “good ‘ole days” is the best way to teach our visitors about our past.  Our living history demonstrators provide the invaluable service which opens the eyes of our visitors and teaches people about Nebraska’s past. 

Who can volunteer?

Anyone can volunteer for the Living History program that has a passion for Nebraska’s past and enjoys sharing that with others.  Those volunteers under 19 must have parental permission.  Having some experience with re-enactments is a plus.
