Every year, thousands of individuals and groups support our national parks as Volunteers-in-Parks, or VIPs. Volunteers perform a number of important duties, including serving as campground hosts, maintaining trails, assisting researchers and resource managers, and educating visitors.
Here at Big Thicket National Preserve, volunteers oppertunities range from tree planting and litter pick-up to visitor center staffing or office work. They can vary in lenght from a few hours to a few weeks or longer. With a wide variety of oppertunities, there is sure to be something for everyone! To learn more about volunteer opportunities in the preserve, please call our volunteer coordinator at 409-951-6725. To find volunteer opportunities nationwide, please search volunteer.gov.
