Video – How to Volunteer at a National Park

Kay, a veteran parks volunteer – and fellow GypsyNester – discusses how to apply, where one lives at the parks, what is expected of volunteers and, most importantly, why she does it!

Isn’t Kay fabulous as we ask her the important questions?:

Why did you start volunteering at the parks?

What kind of work do you and your husband do?

How many days a week do you work?

But, Kay, we’re in the middle of a wildlife refuge. Where do you live?

What if we don’t have an RV?

What is a volunteer village?

How much studying do you need to do about the area?

Do you get to pick where you are placed in the park?

Hey Kay, this sounds awesome! How do we sign up? Any good resources?

    1. Thanks so much for the link Marilyn. This will help anyone interested in volunteering – can’t believe we didn’t think to include the link in the text – doh!

  1. Thanks for the great posting about Oke NWR….you captured the essence of the place very well. And your posting of the video of me has made the rounds of all my family and friends. Does this make me a movie star??? or is it just my 15 minutes of fame?

    I enjoy reading of your adventures but had to comment on this one.

    Your friend, Kay at Oke NWR.
