(UNDATED) - Celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. National Day of Service on Jan. 18 by signing up to volunteer at an Indiana State Park in 2016.

From maintaining trails to entering computer data to helping in the nature centers, Hoosiers can help state park properties by donating their time and talent.

"Volunteering gives you a great sense of accomplishment," said Jody Heaston, volunteer coordinator for Indiana State Parks. "You know you are helping manage and conserve our natural and cultural resources for future generations to enjoy."

For more information, visit stateparks.IN.gov/2443.htm. You can download an application and return it to the state park or lake where you want to volunteer. You can also send the application to jheaston@dnr.IN.gov if you don't have a particular park in mind.

Jan. 18 is a state holiday, so property offices and most nature centers will not be open. Self-directed service such as walking trails and picking up litter on that day is welcome. You can check with your favorite park the week before to see if other self-directed volunteer opportunities are available.

Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service volunteers can take a photo and share it with Indiana State Parks on Facebook at facebook.com/INdnrstateparksandreservoirs.
