Help the Friends in more ways
Inquires about volunteering start with park staff and can include a sit-down meeting with the Minneopa Area Naturalist to discuss opportunities to help out. You can volunteer for a specific project or more of a long term basis.
For those wanting to volunteer beyond just a one time, a background check will need to be conducted by the MN DNR. Both Bison Ambassadors and the Invasive Species team go through training conducted by park staff. Park staff is also interested in hearing what ideas you might have for volunteering which could include picking up litter, conducting an interpretive program or collecting data on plant and animals species.
