Volunteering at the Obed Wild and Scenic River can be a unique experience. Because the river stretches out for 45 miles, clean-up efforts by park personnel are always a challenge. Every May, the Obed participates in National River Clean-up Day, which gives many of our local neighbors a chance to help their park. The Obed Wild and Scenic River is always looking for willing volunteers to help clean up the river site and its boundaries on any day of the year.
Volunteers at the Obed can also be proficient indoors as well. Our visitor center can use volunteers any day of the week to provide information to visitors, answer telephones, assist with junior ranger programs, and many different clerical duties. Volunteers can be any age, but youths under age 18 need a parent or guardian signature.
Please contact the park at 423-346-6294 to find out how you can be a park volunteer.
