Volunteering in Glacier
Glacier National Park depends on dedicated volunteers to perform duties and complete projects that we simply could not do without them. On average, we have 922 volunteers annually donate 61,425 hours. From overseeing campgrounds to caring for native plants to patrolling over 700 miles of trails, our volunteers help protect our valuable resources and help visitors learn about, and safely enjoy, the many aspects of Glacier National Park.
How To Find A Position
Volunteer opportunities are posted online at https://www.nps.gov/getinvolved/volunteer.htm and at https://www.volunteer.gov/.
Volunteer Service Groups
If you are interested in bringing a service group to Glacier National Park, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then send you a Service Group Application to get the process started. Please contact us well in advance of your intended trip to Glacier, as we cannot accommodate last minute requests. We start scheduling service groups in mid-February, and our schedule is usually full by the end of May.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Glacier National Park encourages people from countries around the world to apply to volunteer. However, the park has extremely limited housing, which limits our ability to consider volunteers who do not already have housing in the local area. In addition, there are some special requirements for an international (non-U.S. citizen) volunteer. Please read the information at the National Park Service's NPS International Volunteers page, should you wish to volunteer at Glacier National Park or another site in the National Park System.
