Gateway needs your talents and interests. Volunteer at one of the park's three units to have fun, learn new skills and meet people.

They staff information desks, give public tours, monitor and conserve the park's diverse natural and cultural resources, help design exhibits and brochures and rehabilitate historic aircraft, among other duties. Their support helps protect, preserve and enhance Gateway's natural, cultural and recreational resources.
