The National Park Service protects more than 390 national parks in the United States. You can help care for one of these special places by volunteering at Shiloh National Military Park.

Volunteers in Parks (VIPs) help carry out the National Park Service mission: "to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education and inspiration of this and future generations."

Volunteers are an essential part of the Shiloh National Military Park mission. During the Civil War Preservation Trust's annual Park Day each April, volunteers of all ages are welcome to come and provide assistance with painting, grounds maintenance, and monument preservation.

Additional volunteer activities include providing visitor information, trail maintenacne, Memoral Day activities, and many other special events.
