Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are very important to the success of Great Sand Dunes. They serve in all branches of the park's operations, including trails, computer database management, Visitor Center operations, interpretive programs, and campground hosting. Some serve a few days a year for special events, while others live in the park and work a 40 hour week. To inquire about volunteer options and opportunities, please email Eric Valencia or call him at 719-378-6349. Thanks for your interest in volunteering!
