Volunteer at Slide Rock
Volunteering at Slide Rock is a unique opportunity, with beautiful rock formations, Oak Creek, and the apple orchards.
Volunteers will be given free access to the park grounds for a weekly donation of 20 hours of park service in any of our volunteer positions listed below.
Visitor Services volunteers will assist parks in a variety of clerical and administrative functions. These could include typing, filing, gift shop support (inventory control and customer assistance), entry station support (fee collection, disseminating information to visitors), answering the phone, research, and other administrative duties as designated by the Park Manager or his/her designee.
Maintenance Services volunteers will assist parks with general maintenance and small construction projects. Examples include trail work, painting, plumbing, weeding, planting, or other projects as designated by the Park Manager or his/her designee. Volunteers will not be required to perform any extensive maintenance or repairs, especially to equipment and vehicles.
Interpretive Services volunteers support an array of educational and recreational programming. These could include development and presentation of environmental programs (interpretive hikes, school presentations, etc.) historic programs (guided tours of historic houses, brown bag lunch presentations, etc.) and recreational programs (special demonstrations, etc.).
Special project volunteers account for individuals or groups that assist the parks in accomplishing a specific one-time project or a short-term ongoing project. These projects may include, but are not limited to: Creating interpretive displays, research, gardening, clean-up projects and trail work. Scout groups, service learning and non-paid internships typically fall into this category.
