Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, National Park Service

Crew Leader

Do you want to take on a more engaged role in our habitat restoration program? Crew leader volunteers take on a leadership position at our events, helping staff lead groups and assist with setting up and packing up equipment. You will gain leadership skills and network with professionals in the natural resources field as well! We typically ask for crew leaders to commit to one to two events per month as their schedule allows, but we understand that everyone’s schedule is different. You don’t need to be an expert, all you need is a passion for being outside and making a difference in this national park.

For more information or to be considered for the role, please contact fill out our crew leader interest form! If you would like to contact the volunteer team directly, please email volunteer@parkconnection.org.
