Volunteers at the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area work alongside park rangers on a wide variety of events and projects. Volunteers provide valuable assistance in restoring native landscapes, providing new experiences and learning opportunities for school groups, assisting with logistics and skill building at public events, and providing visitors with information about how to experience the Mississippi River. For corporate teams, church groups, and civic clubs volunteering can build team spirit while helping restore the river environment valued by the millions of visitors that ply its waters, walk its trails, and view its wildlife each year.
Whether you are interested in volunteering for a one-time event or on a regular basis, we have a volunteer opportunity for you! The volunteer program is jointly managed by the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area and the park's non-profit charitable partner, Mississippi Park Connection. Volunteer opportunities are advertised in a monthly e-mail newsletter and on the Mississippi Park Connection website. Sign up for the newsletter by emailing us.
