Volunteer With Us

Point Reyes volunteers play an essential role in promoting park stewardship, restoring habitat, monitoring special status species and educating visitors. Volunteering is a great way to learn more about the Seashore, go behind the scenes, and connect with others who love and care for Point Reyes. Point Reyes National Seashore Association (PRNSA) and the National Park Service (NPS) offer an variety of daylong to long-term volunteer opportunities. Please join us!

Every July, PRNSA and the NPS host the Volunteer Appreciation Picnic at the Bear Valley Picnic Area to honor and celebrate our fabulous volunteers and their many accomplishments.
