Shenandoah’s volunteer program is a powerful force that provides vital support and creates enthusiastic advocates for the park’s mission. Each year, approximately 700 volunteers donate more than 42,000 hours of their time to the park – an effort worth an astonishing $1.2 million in services and a priceless investment in building community connections. Volunteers perform backcountry patrols, wildlife surveys, astronomy and other interpretive programs, geologic research, and archaeological work. Our funding helps cover the cost of supplies, housing, uniforms, and vehicles, as well as the staff integral to coordinating this key program.
