We have volunteers who come out and staff our visitor center, perform beach clean-ups, assist with educational programs, run educational programs, create art & assist managing events. The park and the service as a whole could not fulfill the National Park mission without our volunteers! Thank you to all volunteers out there. Here is an article written by VIP, Terry Bledsoe, about her experience at Canaveral National Seashore.
