Park volunteers greet visitors at the information desk.

Volunteers are one of the National Park Service’s most valuable resources. Volunteers In Parks (VIPs) are public-spirited people of all ages, walks of life, and educational backgrounds. Though they are individually different, they share a common interest – a love for the national parks and a desire to impart their enthusiasm and knowledge to others. At Lyndon B. Johnson NHP, volunteers assist with a wide variety of duties and projects. Tasks include everything from working with the Hereford cattle and ranching operations to leading guided tours to assisting with museum collections to maintaining park facilities.


Information for Prospective Volunteers

RV sites with full hookups are available for VIPs in the park at no cost to the volunteer. Limited housing for VIPs without an RV is available in the park.

Hours and Period of Work
VIPs make a commitment for a specific period of service. VIPs utilizing the RV sites or park housing facilities should plan to work two or three consecutive months at 32 hours per week.
