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.

A red squirrel eats the seeds of about 144 spruce cones each day. This diet allows red squirrels to thrive in the spruce-dominated forests of Lower Glacier Bay. How many spruce cones do you eat each day?
