Ever wanted to be treated as a VIP? You can be one at Cape Lookout National Seashore! Become a VIP by signing up for our VIP (that’s Volunteer-in-Parks) program.

Every year Cape Lookout National Seashore VIPs from all walks of life volunteer their time and expertise to a variety of projects.

As a VIP, you will work side-by-side with National Park Service rangers, biologists, and maintenance staff. The types of positions vary greatly and may include such activities as computer data entry, skilled and unskilled maintenance, trail trimming, beach clean-up, wildlife monitoring, exotic plant removal, greeting visitors at visitor centers, and environmental education assistance.

Volunteer opportunities are available for a wide range of time commitments – from a few hours to all summer – and schedules. Some opportunities, such as the caretaker positions, require two people who are willing to work together. For more information on these positions, please visit our Annual Volunteer Opportunities webpage.

If you are interested in becoming a VIP, fill out an application (available on the volunteer.gov website) and follow the directions on how to submit.

Information on volunteer opportunities for groups and internships is provided on the pages in this section.
