While providing valuable assistance to parks, volunteers receive training, build their resumes, and give back in a meaningful way to their communities and public lands. “Volunteering in a national park is a great way to meet people and a wonderful means of public service,” said Dave Schafer, chief of interpretation and resource management. “We look forward to adding more local volunteers to our park team.”
