NPS and COVID-19

Currently, all CVNP volunteer activities are temporarily suspended. Please check the park's home page or email the volunteer office (volunteer@forcvnp.org) for more information.

The NPS is taking extraordinary steps to implement the latest guidance fom 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.

Please check our dedicated "National Park Service and Coronavirus" page for more information as it becomes available.

Make a Difference Day at Cuyahoga Valley National Park

We will be celebrating Make a Difference Day 2020 by hosting multiple small group volunteer sessions from Monday, October 19 - Saturday, October 24. Join us for a habitat restoration project as we plant native trees to help restore natural habitats. Volunteers 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. Advanced registration is required is for all participants. For more information and to register, please visit our registration page.

Building a Community of Park Stewards

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 National Park Service, the Conservancy for CVNP, Countryside Conservancy, and Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
