Baxter State Park Volunteer Program
- Volunteers making picnic tables
Baxter State Park offers a limited number of openings for volunteer service within the Park. Anyone 18 years of age or older, who enjoys life in a mountain environment, especially anyone who loves Baxter State Park, is offered an opportunity to assist the Park Staff. Those under 18 years of age are welcome to participate under the direct supervision of an adult family member, or as a member of an organized group with adult leadership.
Work will be under the supervision of Park personnel. Applications will be screened, and interviews arranged as requested.
Campsite space or rustic housing may be provided for volunteers. But all personal gear, food, bedding, etc. shall be the responsibility of the volunteer.
It is expected that volunteers serving as campground assistants, trail crew or helping with Park maintenance will be available for a period of at least one week, and will contribute a minimum of 28 hours service per week. Under certain circumstances, shorter periods of time may be acceptable. Those first-year volunteers with at least 28 hours of service will receive patches. Return volunteers with 28 hours of service will receive yearly rocker bars to attach to their original patch.
The following form should be printed, filled out, and mailed in.
