The Volunteer-In-Park (VIP) program is co-managed by the National Park Service and the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Join us in creating meaningful experiences and preserving Cuyahoga Valley National Park for future generations. There is a place for everyone to find their volunteer niche. The Volunteer-In-Park program provides a variety of options for kids, families, and adults of all ages. We also work hand-in-hand to provide unique opportunities for corporate, school, scout, and youth groups.

Come out and Spend the Day with Us!
