Volunteering on Lake Superior
Be keeper of the light or a modern voyageur.

If you want to live in a lighthouse this summer, January is the time to shine a light on your qualifications.
The national-park service has posted volunteer positions at national parks and monuments around the nation, and some of the most enticing are on Lake Superior.
Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin has the most lighthouses and the most keeper positions, on Devils, Michigan and Sand (pictured) islands. The park service also needs live-in helpers on Oak and Manitou islands.
In Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the remote Au Sable Light needs a volunteer keeper.
