Volunteer with Us​

You can make our great places better.

The Maryland Park Service offers a variety of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups. Work behind the scenes or on the front line in positions ranging from a one-time service project / volunteer event to a longer-term position, serving alongside park employees or with one of our many partner organizations. Opportunities are available at park locations throughout the State.

Some positions are specialized and require specific knowledge, skills, and abilities, as well as a background check. Other positions only require a desire and willingness to volunteer. Individuals under the age of 18 must have written consent of the parent or legal guardian before they may volunteer. To learn more about the laws and policies that guide our volunteer programs, see our program manual.
