(UNDATED) – From maintaining trails to helping in a nature center, Hoosiers can celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, 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 Indiana State Parks. “You know you are helping manage and conserve our natural and cultural resources for future generations to enjoy.”
Heaston said she hopes many volunteers from National Volunteer week will “catch the giving-back spirit” and continue to volunteer with state parks.
