Voyageurs National Park’s Ash River Visitor Center, located in the historic Meadwood Lodge, is in need of volunteers for this summer.

If you’re a local resident and can commit to volunteering one or two days a week for the summer, the park would love to have you! There is also an opportunity for a non-local volunteer, with housing included if you’re able to volunteer 32 hours a week (cabin or RV pad with hookups).

Email us (vnpa@voyageurs.org) if you are interested in either of these opportunities, and we will connect you with park staff!

As a visitor center volunteer, you will be tasked with providing information about the park to visitors. This can include tasks such as handing out maps and other printed materials, helping visitors to plan their visit to the park and surrounding area, and answering visitor phone calls. You will also help with the visitor center’s gift shop, including making sales with a cash register and performing opening and closing procedures.

Visitor centers are a vital part of the park’s operations, and you would be helping to ensure that visitors who launch from the popular Ash River area would be able to get the information they need. It’s an amazing opportunity to share your love of the park with others and help make sure they understand the significance of this beautiful place!
