Making a Difference - National Park Service Volunteers
Volunteers for the National Park Service have the ability to improve the experiences of all those who visit here! Volunteers serve as the front line to the public; greeting visitors eagerly and providing them with any knowledge they may need to have a fun, safe, informative time exploring the Canyon and trails. Friendly smiles and demeanor can go a long way to make a person’s trip to see this park that much better. Volunteering here at Little River Canyon can mean spreading information in the Canyon Center in the air conditioning, beginning the film for visitors, and being most people’s first interaction in the park with an official NPS representative. Or it could mean being out roving the trails and chatting with visitors while out in the great outdoors. Our volunteer program can work for you and your interests, indoors or out!
You can learn new skills, teach others and stay active and involved. Little River Canyon National Preserve Volunteers help preserve and maintain the diverse natural, cultural and recreational resources of the park for current visitors and future generations alike. You can make a difference by donating just a few hours a month.
