Volunteer training programs will begin on Friday April 17, 2015. At the training sessions, prospective volunteers will have the opportunity to meet with Parks staff, and learn about the various volunteer positions currently available.

No previous experience is required.

Donner Memorial State Park is known for its Century-old Pioneer Memorial, and the locations of some of the Donner Party campsites. In addition to interactive exhibits and modern audio-visual offerings, the new Visitors Center will also feature special events.
