Volunteers-In-Parks Program

Thank you for your interest in volunteering here at Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve! Since Wrangell St. Elias is a wilderness based park there are very few amenities and no designated campgrounds or RV hook ups. We do have a very active volunteer program and it is normally based on project needs, and funded through park divisions separately. Please use the following link to download/print an official volunteer application.
