Volunteers are the backbone of the National Park Service; we simply could not do the work we do if not for the thousands of volunteers who give of their time and experience. Cane River Creole National Historical Park offers volunteer opportunities for everyone; we welcome groups, couples, and individuals who have a passion for the National Park Service.
