Doing good feels good. Consider giving your spirits a lift by volunteering with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. Across the state, we have opportunities to work alone or in small groups. Scheduling is flexible, and you can arrange your opportunity directly with a property.
Here’s a list of some of the ways citizens work with DNR:
- Act as campground hosts
- Act as a Nature Center Attendant
- Assist with carpentry projects
- Assist with cemetery surveys, archaeological work, and history research
- Clean up waterways
- Internships for school credit (unpaid)
- Maintain trails
