Volunteering is an American tradition that has made an immeasurable contribution to communities, organizations, and individuals throughout the country. Today's volunteers are active, dynamic, creative individuals who possess the skills, desire, patience and time to accomplish a wide variety of tasks. Volunteers-In-Parks are Very Important People (VIPs)! In Fiscal Year 2003, 122,000 volunteers donated 4.5 million hours to your national parks. Volunteers are accepted from the public without regard to race, creed, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, or disability.
