Every year, hundreds of individuals and groups contribute their enthusiasm and skills to help the National Park Service preserve and protect its natural and cultural resources, and to serve and educate its visitors. Volunteers help in almost every area of the park, from working at visitor centers to assisting on research projects. Both individuals and organized groups are welcome to volunteer, and opportunities are available both for highly skilled professionals and for people with little or no experience in land management.
GROUPS can also join us for one of our many "one day" projects. They are scheduled throughout the summer. To find out more about our Group program, go to our Group page. Still have questions?
