Ride-Along Volunteer

Get out and about in your National Park! The Division of Maintenance at the C&O Canal National Historical Park is in need of volunteers to ride-along with park personnel while performing various maintenance tasks.  Participants in the program would be required to accompany park staff on a regular basis. The volunteer will be trained in tasks such as chain saw use, water sample collection, building inspections and general assistance to park maintenance operations.

There are five positions available throughout the park: Potomac, Pleasantville, Williamsport, Hancock, and Oldtown. Volunteers will need to commit to a minimum of one day per week.  A volunteer uniform will be provided.
