Are you looking for a great way to spend a little spare time? Do you want to learn new things, meet new friends, acquire new skills AND make a difference in the community?
Join the volunteer team at Volunteering at First Landing State Park offers the opportunity to enhance the park’s educational and conservation goals. Your skills can help strengthen an exisiting service or shape a new one.
First Landing State Park volunteers are extra-special people who share Virginia State Park’s mission to conserve natural, scenic, historic and cultural resources to provide recreational and educational opportunities and become stewards of these lands, water and facilities for future generations. As visitation increases, demand on all of our resources will be challenging and it is with the support from our volunteers that we meet (and often exceed) expectations every year!
You may volunteer as an individual or group. You may volunteer ona weekly schedule or assist a few times a year. Volunteer positions include building maintenance, trail maintenance, contact station ranger, interpreter, special event host and more.
Volunteers under 18 must have permission from their parent or guardian to volunteer. Virginia State Parks recommends that minors under 16 years of age volunteer with a parent or guardian or be part of an organized group that provides adult supervision.
Based on the number of hours you give, you may receive annual parking passes, camping and cabin use privileges, shirts and more! Volunteer hours also count as job experience.
