Volunteers play an important role in stewarding state parks. Volunteer projects vary depending on the size of the group, the amount of time committed and the priority needs of the park.
DCR works with corporate, non-profit, college, civic and recreational groups, as well as individuals with a passion for parks. Our volunteer season runs annually from mid-May through June 30 and restarts mid-September through November 30.
If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the DCR Volunteer Request Information Form and return it as directed.
