Hudson River Heritage is gearing up for our 2012 Country Seats Tour and we are looking for enthusiastic and responsible docents to guide our guests through the wonderful houses.  The tour this year will take place on Saturday, October 13th, from 10am to 5pm.  We will be showcasing significant country homes of the Twentieth Century. The tour will include both “modern” and “traditional” houses constructed in the mid-Hudson Valley during the last century.

There will be two shifts per day, 9:30am to 1:30pm, and 1:00pm until 5:00pm. 

As a thank you for volunteering, you will receive a complimentary half day pass to tour the homes.
