* Park housing is extremely limited so you’ll need to provide your own RV to live in while you are with us
* All park volunteers are provided with a full (or in a very few instances) a partial hook up site with water, electricity, and sewer
* We ask that you stay a minimum of 30 days at a single state park and work at least 20-30 hours per week per person
* Volunteers may continue to work with us through our entire season if they desire—which is typically Memorial Day through Labor Day
Spread your wings in some of the most spectacular places! Choose to volunteer at a park in an old growth forest, along a trout filled stream, or on the shores of a pristine mountain lake. Or, you may want to help us maintain trails, teach boating safety, or work at a visitor center. As part of our team, volunteers provide essential services with a personal touch. You can make visitor experiences more enjoyable and complete. Your volunteer efforts help preserve the natural treasures of Idaho for generations to come.
How to volunteer....
To volunteer your services and share your knowledge and expertise, please fill out a volunteer application online, or print one out. Selected volunteers will be asked to sign an agreement outlining their responsibilities as well as those of the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation. Keep in mind that not all parks or programs need all the different types of volunteers.
What you do as a Volunteer...
A person may volunteer as an individual or as a part of a group on short term projects of a day or less, or on a long term project in specialized programs. There are many ways to volunteer your time with Idaho State Parks and Recreation. You are invited to join our Idaho Team!
