Glacier National Park depends on dedicated volunteers to perform duties and complete projects that we simply could not do without them. Each year, over 50,000 hours are donated by over 500 individual volunteers. 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.

Glacier National Park welcomes volunteers from many countries around the world. However, there are some special requirements for an international (non-U.S. citizen) volunteer. Please read the information at www.nps.gov/oia/topics/ivip/ivip.htm should you wish to volunteer at Glacier National Park.
Xanterra, one of the concessionaires in Glacier National Park, also hires non-U.S. citizens to work in the historic lodges, gift stores, and restaurants.
