Digital Opportunities

April 19, 2016 Posted by: Dr. Allison Druin

As we celebrate our centennial there are more ways than ever to get involved.  We now have opportunities for those interested in becoming a Virtual Volunteer.  As a NPS web volunteer you would provide feedback to enhance and improve the online offerings of the National Park Service such as:

  • suggesting logical organization for park website navigation
  • determining the appropriate name for a new site on
  • testing a new element that creates species lists for individual parks
  • reviewing new designs and functionality after the soft launch of the 2016 centennial design project

You do not have to live in any particular area to participate—you can contribute from anywhere using any device with a web browser and Internet access. Visit to learn more about this opportunity.

We are also looking for volunteers with web development skills!

As we roll out new functionality on, we are looking to include new voices in the discussion. We are considering opportunities such as hosting a hackathon, providing an API where you can get NPS data to use in your own projects, and providing a GitHub environment so you can help us develop Interested? Check back in summer 2016 for more info.

We look forward to working with you all in Celebrating #NPS100
