NPS and COVID-19

Currently, most CVNP volunteer activities are temporarily suspended. Please check the park's home page or the Conservancy's volunteer page for more information.

The NPS is taking extraordinary steps to implement the latest guidance from state and local public health authorities, which support the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention's (CDC) efforts to promote social distancing and slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Decisions on modifications to park operations are being made on a park-by-park basis and re-evaluated regularly. Visitor services, other than those of public and resource protection (such as law enforcement and trash removal), will be limited or suspended.

2021 Days of Service at Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Tree Planting

Join us in planting trees to help preserve Cuyahoga Valley National Park!

By planting trees, you are restoring the natural habitat of your park and benefiting the environment! You will use shovels to dig holes for native trees, hammer in stakes beside newly planted trees, and cover trees with deer tubes for protection. This project helps to fill in the tree canopy and creates less fragmented habitat for wildlife.

Volunteers who are 7-15 years of age must have parent or guardian supervision at the project site. Volunteers who are 16-18 years of age are only required to have a parent or guardian sign their Volunteer Agreement form.

**Advanced registration is required for all individuals. Group sizes are small, and have a strict attendance cap.

Building a Community of Park Stewards

Make a vital contribution to Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) and our community! You can help the park fulfill its mission to provide visitor enjoyment and preserve resources. The mission of CVNP's Volunteers-in-Parks Program is to engage people in the park, building a community of park stewards. The volunteer program is co-managed by the National Park Service and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Depending on the volunteer position, volunteers will work with staff from the National Park Service, the Conservancy for CVNP, Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, or at Countryside Farmers' Markets.
