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?
Ash from the May 1931 eruption of Aniakchak fell at a rate of a pound per hour at the Chignik villages, 65 miles to the south. The blast was heard 200 miles away and the ash sprinkled the ground nearly 700 miles from the source. The eruption left a caldera 250 deep and one-half mile wide.
