Building a Community of Park Stewards

Make a difference by joining our Volunteers-in-Parks Program. Come alone or bring friends, family, or coworkers. We are working together to build 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, Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, or Countryside. Volunteers help at visitor centers, on trails, on the train, at farmers' markets, in offices, and at programs.

Drop-in Opportunities

Drop-ins are a great opportunity to work with a small group of park staff and volunteers for an hour or two in the national park.

Days of Service

Days of Service are large-scale events that bring people together to make a positive impact on the national park.
