Come live and work in a National Park!
Volunteers are an important part of the park staff, donating thousands of hours of their time to National Park Service sites around the country and helping us with our daily goals and operations. Volunteering in any national park is a rewarding experience ripe with opportunities for personal development and career advancement. Fulfill that dream of working and living in a national park as part of the Volunteers in Park (VIP) Program.

Natural & Cultural Resource Management.
Volunteers may assist in tracking, restoration, telemetry, fish, and various wildlife projects.
Interested in exploring your national park? Come immerse yourself in this magnificent wilderness - maybe you can be part of the next big discovery here at Great Basin! Our Lint and Restoration Camp is very popular, and we especially need volunteers for our annual BioBlitz.
Interpretation & Education
Jump start your NPS career by presenting interpretive and educational programs.
Volunteers assist in staffing the visitor center desk, providing information and direction to visitors, and selling bookstore merchandise. Volunteers will be able to research and present interpretive and educational programs to the public. Possible programs include: cave tours, astronomy programs, telescope demonstrations, patio talks/demonstrations, evening programs, and junior ranger activities. Formal training in the art of interpretation will be provided upon arrival.
Volunteer opportunities are available year round. Housing may be available, depending on the length and season of service.
