Join us! Be in a Volunteer in Parks (VIP)

There are many options for volunteers : group, individual, internships and special projects. They all offer different experiences. Group volunteering often involves labor intensive one-time (or recurring) events, such as beach cleanups and campgrounds maintenance. Individual volunteering is for you if you would like to help with visitor use assistance or tours that require recurring participation. Check on our current volunteer opportunities to find out more.

If you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions, contact VIP/Volunteer Coordinator Keith White via email or call 718-354-5109.
