Future Volunteers of Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve,

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve! Glacier Bay is a remote location and is accessible only by boat or small plane. We do have a very active volunteer program and it is normally based on project needs, and funded through park divisions separately. It is this park's preference to review applications on hand for volunteer selections on park projects. Please use the following link to download/print an official volunteer application.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Lupine Buds

Lupines are hardy pioneers typically growing in areas with nutrient poor soil, like those of a retreating glacier. The fine hairs on their stems and the undersides of their leaves help to deflect wind and retain heat for more favorable growing conditions.
