The National Park Service has established a website that makes it easy to volunteer at a park near you.
You simply enter your state or zip code, and the site will display the parks in your area. Then you can select a park, view the volunteer positions, and submit your information.
There are a variety of volunteer opportunities, including one-time projects as well as recurring activities to help with park operations.
In addition to parks, the website shows volunteer opportunities at national preserves, historic sites, and recreation areas.
