Volunteer

There are many volunteer opportunities at Grant-Kohrs Ranch. Serving as a park volunteer will provide a very important service to our park area, our community, and our nation. The ability to improve visitor experiences depends greatly on the successful recruitment of volunteers to augment the core of highly professional and dedicated National Park Service staff.

Our volunteers work in our Interpretation and Visitor Services division assisting with visitor center operations, guided house tours and special events, our Curatorial division assisting with museum object care, and our Natural Resource Management division assisiting with ranch work. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the park volunteer coordinator.
