Expect to have fun, meet people who love the outdoors, and get dirty! Volunteer work days are typically 4 hours long, rain or shine. Volunteers take part in ecological restoration work such as planting trees or wildflowers, controlling erosion, or managing invasive species. Volunteers receive safety and work training when they arrive and are provided the tools and materials to make a difference in our amazing parks.
