Building a Community of Park Stewards

Make a difference by joining our Volunteers-in-Parks Program! Come alone or bring friends, family, or coworkers. We are working together to build a community of park stewards.

Rock Creek Park works with many park partner organizations to manage our volunteer program. Depending on the volunteer position or event, volunteers will work with staff from the National Park Service, one of our park partners, or our trained volunteer event leaders.Volunteers help at our Nature Center, on the trails, throughout the forest, within our community, and at park events.
