The Washington State Parks Volunteer Program is looking for volunteers for 2020 for a variety of tasks.
“Washington State Parks is fortunate to have a great team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers,” said Cindy Jorgensen, manager of the agency’s Volunteer Program. “We are always looking for people of all ages who love their parks, enjoy the outdoors and want to give back.”
Volunteer opportunities come in many forms, depending on a person’s skill level, time commitment and interest, according to state parks. Some examples include: Camp hosting; maintaining trails, campgrounds and park landscaping; assisting with interpretive programs; restoring habitat; doing minor repairs; performing office duties and organizing and assisting with events.
State Parks is looking for individual volunteers and groups such as schools, service organizations and corporations.
Hours spent volunteering on qualifying projects can earn volunteers a complimentary Discover Pass. State Park camp hosts and marine hosts must provide their own RV or boat. Camp and marine hosts receive free camping or moorage with hookups in exchange for performing hosting duties.
