In response to the recent shutdown and the pressing needs of many of our parks, NPCA, with the support of its partner Nature Valley, wants to encourage its members and supporters to express their love for parks through service. On this site, you'll find volunteer opportunities at parks around the country, some of which directly address damage that occurred during the 35-day partial shutdown. NPCA staff may not be present at all of these events (we've noted which ones are led or sponsored by us), but we encourage you to pitch in at a site near you. These are our parks. And they need us, now more than ever.
