Volunteers In Parks (VIP)
Become part of the VIP program by assisting park staff with interpretive, biological, archeology, or maintenance projects. Every year volunteers donate over 2,000 hours to Hopewell Culture! The work done by volunteers at Hopewell Culture is invaluable to the park, the community and visitors. Individuals or groups can volunteer at any time of the year. Contact the park's volunteer coordinator by phone at 740-774-1126 or send an email request for more information.
The VIP program began in 1969 when congress passed the Volunteers in the Parks Act of 1969. Read Director's Order #7: Volunteers in Parks, which has more information about volunteering in the national parks.
