Help Your National Parks

The national parks belong to everyone and there are many ways you can help your parks. You can leave no trace when you visit the parks. You can also become more actively involved in the stewardship of these national treasures.

For example, you can:

Volunteer in a National Park... Help preserve and protect America's natural and cultural heritage for the enjoyment of this and future generations. At the same time enjoy volunteering in a park performing rewarding projects. Volunteer opportunities abound for groups and organizations such as Scouts, Student Conservation Association crews, the local community. They also abound for individuals.

Work in a National Park... The opportunity to work in the National Park Service can be the chance of a lifetime. There are over 380 national parks in the United States. Each can be a place in which to gain experience and help develop a career. A career in the NPS may lead you through some of our nation's crown jewels and to discover some of its less-known natural wonders. It may bring you to a new perspective on our heritage, an enhanced respect for our people and their history, as well as an appreciation of the complexities of managing our natural resources. It is challenging and rewarding. We invite you to apply.

Internship in a National Park... We invite you to internship in some of the most beautiful areas of the country. Many parks and central offices offer opportunities for interesting and educational Internships.
