Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve is managed by the staff of Katmai National Park and Preserve from National Park Service headquarters in King Salmon, AK. Volunteers may occasionally help out at Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve with various aspects of park management including resource management and archeological field work. Some of our volunteers work through the Student Conservation Association (SCA) and the Serve Alaska Youth Corps (SAGA).
Volunteer positions are somewhat limited due to lack of housing. Positions are filled by March for the following summer season. For more information on the Volunteer Program at Aniakchak, email or write

Did You Know?
The Aniakchak River drops more than 1,000 feet in the first 15 miles leaving the caldera. The final 12 miles of the 27 mile river is a smooth, winding float along the open tundra. Watch for bears, moose, and other wildlife as you float.
