Volunteer In the Parks
During the winter season, November through March, Death Valley has intermittent openings for long term volunteers. Positions may be as campground hosts, maintenance workers of any and all disciplines, or as assistants to scientific researchers working in the field. Volunteers should be committed to staying at least a minimum of three months, and since housing, other than campground hookups, is not available, volunteers should be prepared to bring their homes with them.

For details and specific information on Death Valley's volunteer programs, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (760) 786-3207.

For nation-wide volunteer opportunities in all disciplines, visit www.volunteer.gov/gov


Current Volunteer Opportunities


Student Conservation Association (SCA)
The National Park Service needs volunteers throughout the year to assist with all aspects of park management: from archeological surveys to trail construction. Many of our volunteers work through the Student Conservation Association a non-profit organization that provides more than three thousand volunteers per year for conservation projects. For information on the SCA and on becoming a member, visit their website at www.thesca.org
