Volunteering at America's National Parks

Each year, thousands of individuals visit America's National Parks not just to relax and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings, but to volunteer as well. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, improve the environment, get a little exercise and meet like-minded friends.

Some of the volunteer work available includes maintaining trails, clearing brush and trees, greeting visitors, providing guided tours, and offering office and clerical assistance. A few hours of work can go along way in ensuring a high quality experience for visitors and residents of the park.

There are many volunteer opportunities available at America's National Parks.
