Mission Statement

The National Park Service Volunteers-In-Parks Program (VIP) was authorized by Public Law 91-357 enacted 1970.
The primary purpose of the VIP program is to provide a vehicle through which the National Park Service can accept and utilize voluntary help and services from the public. The major objective of the program is to utilize this voluntary help in such a way that is mutually beneficial to the National Park Service and the volunteer.


Greenbelt Park is a retreat from the pressures of city life and a refuge for native plants and animals just twelve miles from the White House and Capitol.

The Greenbelt volunteer program has many opportunities to be a part of helping a National Park.

Opportunities include Campground host, invasive plant removal partner, park cleanups, and trail partner. The park also hosts the Potomac Watershed Cleanup (April), National Park Week Volunteer Day (April), National Trails Day (June),Public Lands Day (September) and REI Volunteer days (throughout the year).
Help make a difference!
