Short-term (1-day) volunteer opportunities exist to assist staff with river clean up (paddling the river to pick up trash and other debris) and assisting with data collection for resource management.

Contact the park volunteer coordinator, Sandi Kinzer at 402-376-1901 to discuss your interests and how they might be matched with park needs.
