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.
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Activities: Through the summer, two volunteers, working as astronomers-in-the-park, are stationed on the west side of the park and provide solar and night sky interpretation to the visiting public. Prior knowledge of astronomy and telescopes is required.
