2023 DEWA Park Stewards

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

DEWA Park Stewards are volunteers who serve on the frontline of our park’s busiest sites to keep these popular locations clean. They will be volunteering in coordination with the park’s maintenance division to address the trash and other maintenance problem that exist at many of our park’s heavily used locations. Stewards will be picking up and properly disposing of trash and demonstrating good leave-no-trace principles to all visitors. Volunteers may also assist with answering questions from visitors while they are out and about the park.

Park Stewards should expect to be on their feet, walking around, outside on uneven terrain and exposed to the elements for most, if not all, of their day. Additionally, they should wear a mask while interacting with visitors and each other should be prepared to model good health safety protocols for the public. Volunteers in this position are expected pick up trash and to be able to work independently and in coordination with others.

Volunteers for Park Stewards positions are asked to donate at least 8 hours per month. Volunteers will be expected to wear their park issued volunteer uniform items as earned by submitting their work hours to the park each month.

Safety: Safety considerations such as proper hydration, heat-related illnesses, insect/animal bites and stings, and tick-borne illnesses should be discussed by volunteer leads as appropriate given the local work environment, season, and geographic location. Types of weather may include hot, humid, wet, windy, and cold.

Physical Demands associated with volunteering range from light exertion to physically demanding work depending on the task. In general, tasks involve frequent stooping, lifting, reaching, bending, carrying tools/equipment.

´╗┐Volunteers are expected to wear identifying clothing (DEWA Volunteer Uniform items) to indicate their volunteer status and proper personal protective equipment (PPE) depending on the activity they are performing.
