Volunteering During the Pandemic
Volunteers are critical to carrying out the mission at Tennessee State Parks and we are grateful to those who contribute to protecting and preserving our special places, especially during this uncertain time. We want to continue to host outdoor volunteer opportunities and we have put the following guidelines in place to ensure the health and safety of all involved.
Find a Place to Volunteer
Throughout the year, there are many Tennessee State Park events that ask for and rely on volunteer help. From trail maintenance at Radnor Lake to invasive plant pulls at Burgess Falls, the help of volunteers is needed and valued. The link below is your first step in finding an event near you and answering the call for help from a Tennessee State Park.
In order to register for a volunteer event at Tennessee State Parks, you will need to create an account in our new volunteer management system. Please reach out to us if you run into any issues or have questions at 615-532-5249 or firstname.lastname@example.org
