About the Volunteer Program at Denali
Each year, volunteers contribute more than 60,000 hours to Denali National Park and Preserve. Retired couples, individuals, school groups, scouts, clubs and organizations - people just like you - donate their time and efforts to provide essential services at Denali's visitor centers, offices, kennel operations, campgrounds and even on the majestic slopes of North America's highest mountain. Our volunteers also contribute long hours constructing trails, eradicating invasive plants, gathering native seeds and assisting park researchers with a variety of projects.
Volunteer Event: Need for Seed - Saturday, August 3
Native Seed Collection
Help harvest and dry native seeds while learning about Denali’s native plants and restoration projects in the park.
Every volunteer will receive a thank-you gift and each adult will receive a voucher for a transit bus ride in the park (you choose the date, includes park entrance fee).

Citizen Science—The Denali Grizzly Bear DNA Project
