Current Volunteer Opportunities
Being a VIP at Big South Fork
The VIP program provides an opportunity through which the National Park Service can accept and utilize voluntary help and services from the public. The objective of the program is to utilize this voluntary help in a way that is mutually beneficial to the National Park Service and the volunteer.The VIP program in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is extensive – from front country to backcountry, visitor centers, trails, campsites, resource management and many things in between. Once you are a volunteer in the program, you can always expand you volunteer service and add other duties, on trail and off, when we have the need and you have the desire!
