Lake Roosevelt wants volunteers who are committed to our mission: to provide safe outdoor recreational experiences, preserve and protect the historic, cultural, and natural objects on our site, for the benefit and enjoyment of the public, now and in the future.

Our volunteers have many different skills, but they have one thing in common. They are here because they recognized the park's importance and want to be stewards of the lake.
