About the Volunteer-In-Parks (VIP) Program

Volunteer opportunities at Fort Vancouver, the McLoughlin House, and the Pearson Air Museum are as diverse as the programs and resources of the park.

History and archaeology buffs, carpenters, artists, students, gardeners, blacksmiths, aviation enthusiasts, and many more people have found in the park a place to share their skills. Each volunteer's contribution makes a big difference!

 

The park includes an array of resources unparalleled in the National Park System. Extensive archaeological collections, reconstructed and historic buildings, engaging programs and special events, historic trails, stunning landscapes, as well as lesser known but equally remarkable places. It is a park like no other.

Do you see your dream job? Do you want to know more about volunteering in the park? If you have special skills or want to learn some, give us a call. All volunteers receive orientation and training. Come and join us!
