Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park Proudly Honors Our Volunteers!

At Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, there are varying volunteer opportunities. Some of the more common are:

  • Interpreting the park to visitors with the goal of ensuring every visitor experience is a positive one by interacting with them at the Kīlauea Visitor Center and Jaggar museum, by giving informative talks and by leading interpretive hikes.
  • Removal of invasive plants.
  • Assisting with native plant propagation and re-forestation.
  • Working in plant nurseries - seed collection.
  • Working with Hawksbill and sometimes Green Sea Turtles, protecting the nests and maximizing survival of the hatchlings.
  • Administration.

Sound exciting? Please see the bottom of this page for current opportunities.
