Looking for an RV-owning couple to come live and volunteer in Zion for three months sometime between Mid-February through December 2020.

Volunteers are official representatives of the National Park Service and are required to wear the NPS park volunteer uniform while on duty. Duties include, but are not limited to:

• Providing a variety of visitor information on hiking trails, the shuttle system, Jr Ranger program, ranger-led programs, backcountry permits, and/or other activities within the park.
