Our Arkansas State Parks system would not be what it is today without the dedication of volunteers throughout the years. In fact, early records indicate that Dr. T.W. Hardison was the first state park volunteer. He was the first chairman of the State Parks Commission and it was through his dedication and efforts that our first state park, Petit Jean State Park, was created. The rest of the story is our legacy.

You can be a part of this incredible legacy and a steward of The Natural State’s parks. Just fill out the short form to the right. The park(s) you choose will contact you about volunteer opportunities in your area that you decide are a good fit. It’s as easy as that. You might be contacted about a cleanup to preserve a park’s scenic beauty or a work day to improve or repair a recreation facility or campground. No matter how you help, volunteering at your Arkansas State Parks is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and make a difference. Check out the upcoming volunteer dates below and add them to your calendar.

Thank you for your willingness to serve as a state park volunteer and be a vital part of the Arkansas State Parks tradition and heritage.
