Ready to make a difference? Lend a hand in your parks!

Help preserve and protect the natural and cultural resources of the Boston Harbor Islands so that visitors can enjoy these special places for generations to come!

Opportunities are available for both individual and group volunteers. Roll up your sleeves working alongside our Natural Resources Team maintaining island trails and important habitat areas, or work side by side with Park Rangers to welcome visitors and answer questions. No previous experience is required and all training, tools, and leadership is provided.

Whether you are volunteering for a single event, lending your time throughout the season or participating in a group service day, your contribution to the park is greatly appreciated!
