Volunteer

Put your talent, passion, and energy to use in the parks. Whether you're by yourself or with a group, Three Rivers has ongoing and short-term volunteer openings for many interests. From turtle monitors to program interpreters to park patrollers and more, you’ll find plenty of ways to give back, and feel good doing it.

No matter the season, Three Rivers has opportunities for volunteers to get involved in environmental stewardship projects, special events, programs and more happening across the parks.

Volunteers are needed to assist at events, programs and with planning. One-time helpers are welcome.

Talk to a volunteer coordinator in person at one of the Three Rivers’ Explore Volunteering open houses.

Each year, the Distinguished Volunteer Service Award Recipients contribute to the community and have an amazing level of commitment to their service at Three Rivers. 

Individual and group ongoing and short-term opportunities are available for a variety of ages and skills.

Resources and information for current volunteers.
