Conserving and protecting the natural and cultural resources of this incredible free-flowing river and providing for its enjoyment by present and future generations is more than the National Park Service can do alone . Volunteers greet and help educate visitors, rescue folks in need, keep the area clean, participate in scientific studies, and much, much more. We can't do it without volunteers! Volunteer opportunities abound at Buffalo National River and BNRP would love your help. Check the Events page to see what projects are in the works. Sign up and become a member! Membership is free. Donations are appreciated!


Sign up to volunteer for specific events.

Signing up to volunteer is one of the best ways to connect with the BNRP community and to make a contribution to the future of the Buffalo National River. Check the Events and Sign Up. See you there!


After volunteering, please log your hours and thanks!

Your volunteer hours are important for two reasons.  BNRP receives not only your service work which is greatly appreciated, but Buffalo National River (BNR) also receives additional funding for all volunteer hours that are reported.

When you volunteer for BNRP and BNR, you can log these hours online.  The activity for volunteering will be marked in the Events or Calendar section of the website. Click the button below to log your hours or click the Members Area button in the upper right corner to log your hours. Fill out the form to log your hours and press submit. That’s it. There are codes for each activity, but if you participate in a volunteer activity that is not listed, log “900-Other” and explain your activity in the comment box.

BNRP members have many opportunities throughout the year for volunteer activities.  But, if the hours are not reported the Park will not receive the full benefit. We hope you will find logging your volunteer hours online an easy process and hope that you will remember to log all hours. Thanks!
