This weekend, head out to a nearby county, state, or national park, and volunteer to help. You can pick up litter, greet visitors, conduct tours, work at special events, work in the gift shop, or maintain a beach, waterway, or trail. Check out these websites to get started: 

US Forest Service Volunteer Program 

Volunteer Events with the National Park Service 

Or, to find volunteer opportunities at a state park, do a search online using your state’s name and the words “state park” and “volunteer”.
