Volunteering as a Group

There are several ways we can accommodate organized groups who wish to do a service project in the park :


Volunteering as an Individual

By submitting a completed volunteer application, individuals can sign up to be notified of major volunteer projects, to request a volunteer position at one of our historic sites or in some other capacity in the park, or to complete a community service requirement for their school or organization.

Completed applications should be sent to Eric Nelsen, Palisades Interstate Park, Box 155, Alpine, NJ 07620, attached to an email, or dropped off at our Park Headquarters in Alpine (administrative offices on second floor).
