Volunteers in Parks (VIPs)
Last year over 120 people contributed nearly 10,000 hours of service to the park. Volunteers help keep visitor centers open, maintain park facilities, conduct park research, rehabilitate historic sites, help out behind the scenes in the park library, and help to coordinate and staff special events throughout the year.
Housing is sometimes available for selected volunteers who contribute 32 hours per week or more and live outside the local area. Housing can include cabins or trailer pads with hook-ups.
