Michigan offers lighthouse keeper program opportunity

By  | 

Michigan wants you to be a beacon for the state.

The state is accepting applications from people who want to be temporary lighthouse keepers next spring and summer.

The lighthouse is at Tawas Point off the Lake Huron coast.

Each person must pay $75 and put in roughly 70 hours of service over two weeks, and the state says in exchange, you get to live in the lighthouse keeper's quarters.

They say the work includes greeting visitors and doing routine maintenance around the lighthouse.
