(UNDATED) - From maintaining trails to entering computer data, Hoosiers can celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 10-16, by donating their time and talent to Indiana's state parks.

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

Heaston said she hopes National Volunteer week participants will "catch the giving-back spirit" and continue volunteering with state parks.
