Volunteers with the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway work alongside National Park Service staff to protect and restore the diverse resources of the St. Croix and Namekagon rivers and to enrich the experience of visitors. VIPs restore habitats, participate in river clean-ups, assist park rangers with outreach and education and help with special events. Volunteers include individuals and families as well as organized groups. VIPs may volunteer for individual events or for recurring activities. Hours, frequency, and location of work will vary with the nature of the volunteer activity. Please consult the list below to find an opportunity for you! If you have a skill in another area that you'd like to share, please let us know!
