Trail Steward

Volunteers who hike and monitor the trails, are a key part of our trail maintenance efforts. We count on these volunteers to observe trail conditions and report any changes to staff. Just as importantly, stewards help ensure that visitors understand Park rules and engage in only safe trail activities. Contact the Park's Volunteer Coordinator for more information about this opportunity.

Photographer/Videographer

Volunteer photographers and videographers will document park programs and resources in the Beaver Valley Unit of First State National Historical Park. Some positions will be on an as-needed basis (ex. special events) throughout the year or through individual independent work. The volunteer wll travel through the park at different times of day and in different seasons capturing the incredible beauty of the park through photos and videos.
