Cuyahoga Valley National Park Volunteer Program

Peninsula, Ohio - The National Park Service is seeking volunteers to capture and edit video footage taken in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). Volunteers are needed for a variety of videos, including general nature footage throughout CVNP and various events that take place in CVNP during the year. Editing footage is not required, but is helpful. Creative work will be public domain and credited to the National Park Service. However, the videographer will be given credit.

Volunteers are encouraged to use their own video equipment. Professional equipment may be available for use, if needed. There is no time commitment for volunteers, but typical shifts will last two to four hours.

People interested in volunteering as videographer should contact the park's volunteer office for more information and to schedule an interview at 330-657-2299 or volunteer@forcvnp.org. Volunteer applications are available at www.nps.gov/cuva under "Support Your Park" and will also be available at the interview location.
