Are you curious like an explorer?  Do you like to solve problems like a researcher? Do you enjoy participating in community projects? Do you like to talk about what you have learned? Join a scientist in cutting-edge research, share your knowledge with an eager group of school kids, discover and document treasures...the opportunities are as varied as you can imagine! From historical digs to marine studies, our volunteer program spans the country and touches all aspects of the work we do.

Get behind the scenes, learn something new and make a difference.  There are lots of ways you can be a part of the action. Here are just a few ideas:

  • Play a part in special events or education programs
    Get active and celebrate at Parks Day and many more special occasions, participate in historical re-enactments or interpretive programs...

  • Share your discoveries and knowledge with visitors
    Interact as a Park Ambassador, Campground Host or tour guide helper...

  • Study, restore and conserve our heritage
    Participate in archaeological projects, rare plant inventories, butterfly counts, frog monitoring, species at risk monitoring...

  • Take care of the land and the history
