Volunteers-in-Parks provide thousands of hours of service to improve the quality of local parks and help the National Park Service achieve its mission of preserving these resources for future generations.

There are volunteer opportunities for people who want to

  • Share a love of history or nature with park visitors
  • Care for the park's plants or animals
  • Keep trails in good condition
  • Keep the Potomac River watershed free of trash

Volunteering is a great way for students to explore a career as a park ranger, too.

To learn more about volunteering as an individual or a group, call 703-289-2553. All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Services Agreement for Natural Resources Agencies Form (OF 301A) before beginning any work on the parkway.
