Volunteers play a major role in the stewardship of our public lands and work in almost every area of the parks. Their contribution helps preserve and protect the parks' natural and cultural resources, advances essential scientific research through community science, as well as assisting and educating visitors. Both individuals and organized groups are welcome to volunteer, and opportunities are available for all ages and skill levels.

Individual Volunteer Opportunities

There are year-round opportunities, most of which are available in the high season. Your contribution of time, energy, and skills helps protect the cultural and natural resources within the parks. Check out the current openings on our Individual Volunteers page.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

A group of friends, family, co-workers, or any other group can participate in short or long-term projects scheduled throughout the year. Most projects take place in the summer, where volunteer groups can camp for no charge at the Wolverton Service Camp between Lodgepole and the Giant Forest. Groups with volunteers of all ages are encouraged and welcome to participate. See our Group Volunteers page for more information.
