Volunteer

Volunteers give us a great gift - their time and energy! There are a variety of projects that volunteers make possible, from special events to staffing the visitor center.

Did You Know... the St. Johns River Ferry transports visitors through our park? The Friends of the Ferry have a program call Ferry Ambassadors in which they greet people, give them information and promote our park sites and resources. When you sign up with them you become a National Park volunteer as well. Learn more about this program and how you can help the park protect this special piece of our river culture on their website.

There are many ways to volunteer in the Timucuan Preserve, one day events like the Air Potato Round-Up, live in long term volunteering, the local High School volunteer program, living history re-enactors and more! To get involved fill out our application and send it in to either Fort Caroline or Kingsley Plantation.

Sending in a volunteer application?

Once your application is received, we will compare your interests with park projects. If we think we find a good match, we will contact you. We will ask for references at that time.
