Volunteers working


Anyone can be a volunteer including individuals, couples, families, students, and organized groups. Those under the age of 18 may volunteer with the official signed permission of a parent or guardian, which will be provided on the volunteer agreement form.

What We Provide
We will provide an orientation to each new volunteer or group along with training for your specific assignments. Depending on your job, you may be required to wear a uniform. We will provide parts of the uniforms to those with public contact responsibilities. This will be specified in the job description.

For non-local volunteers, we may provide housing and utilities for a minimum of 32 hours of volunteer service per week. The park may provide you with a simply furnished house, motel room, campsite, or RV hookup in a local community.
