Protecting our National Treasures
Supporting your favorite park can be as simple as picking up a single piece of trash during your stay, or as intense as a six-month-long commitment in the backcountry. Friends, groups, associations, volunteers and everyday park visitors all have the potential to contribute in some way to the protection of our national treasures.
Volunteers play a vital role in the daily operation of Dry Tortugas National Park. Through the Volunteers-In-Parks (VIP) program, individuals generously share their time and talents to improve the visitor experience and maintain the unique resources found within the park. On average, volunteers spend two to four weeks a year living and working alongside park staff while performing a wide range of tasks.
Public support is a critical component in the management of National Park Service lands.
