Thank you for your interest in volunteering here at Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve! Since Wrangell St. Elias is a wilderness based park there are very few amenities and no designated campgrounds or RV hook ups. We do have a very active volunteer program and it is normally based on project needs, and funded through park divisions separately. It is this park's preference to review applications on hand for volunteer selections on park projects. Please use the following link to download/print an official volunteer application.
Once you have completed the application, you can send it to this address:
