Nevada State Parks needs volunteers!

Nevada State Parks needs volunteers! Volunteers provide a wide range of useful services to benefit both the parks and the visiting public. Campground hosts camp at a park for extended periods of time and provide general services such as greeting the public, providing information, cleaning the campground/facilities, fee system compliance checks, reporting any problems to the park rangers, and other related duties. The Campground Hosts usually locates “their” trailer or recreational vehicle (RV) in a campsite close to the campground’s entrance.

Other volunteers may provide services like those of the campground host. Work assignments may include a number of services and interpretive functions. These should be based on the individual volunteer’s knowledge, skills and interests. Groups such as scouts, civic and garden clubs often volunteer for special projects. These can include trail building, litter cleanup, fence construction, etc.

Volunteers can gain experience that can be used for employment opportunities. Most of all, volunteers have the satisfaction of knowing they provide valuable and meaningful services in support of Nevada’s state parks. To request a volunteer brochure packet be mailed to you, you can call 775-684-2770 or email State Parks.

Volunteers needed for Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort in Las Vegas. If interested, contact the park at 702-486-3511 or email State Parks for a volunteer brochure and application.
