Yellowstone benefits from a large and vibrant volunteer program. People give more than 100,000 hours of their time to the park every year. Working alongside park employees, volunteers manage campgrounds, conduct scientific research, provide educational programs, pick up garbage, assist in medical emergencies, and much more.
For more information about Yellowstone's volunteer program, email the park's Volunteer Coordinator.
