Volunteer Opportunities

Interested in Becoming a Volunteer?

Volunteer your time to assist visitors and protect the park. 
Do you enjoy nature and being outdoors? Do you want to share knowledge with others and promote conservation and stewardship? This is your opportunity to join our team of dedicated volunteers who rove the trails, interact with visitors, host at the visitor center and in general contribute to the inspiration, education and enjoyment of park visitors. Mountain Parks Foundation (a nonprofit cooperating association supporting the park) depends on volunteers to help as
Docents: Learn about the magnificent old-growth redwoods and Big Basin’s wonderful cultural history, then share your knowledge with the public. Call (831) 338-8883 for more information or a volunteer application.
Camp Hosts: Help visitors while living in the park. For information visit the Campground and Park Hosts page.
Wilderness Patrol:  Hike or mountain bike into scenic backcountry along the famous Skyline to the Sea Trail. For more information, contact the program coordinator Jeremy Lin at (831) 427-2288 or email
