Get Involved

Visits to national parks inspire people to plan another trip, to tell their friends, and often, to ask how they can help.

We love that!

You can:

When you get involved, you help ensure that national parks and programs are relevant. Your ideas add strength to the work we do everyday to preserve special places and stories. Civic engagement is key to the National Park Service mission.

We especially love when kids ask how they can get involved. Younger kids can sign up in the park to be a Junior Ranger or go online and explore our Web Rangers program. Older kids can participate in programs we have with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. High school and college students can give working for the National Park Service a try through our jobs for students.
