Volunteer Information

By giving your time and talents as a volunteer for the DEEP, you would be making an important contribution toward the preservation of our environment for future generations. Some of the benefits of becoming a volunteer include:

  • Seasonal opportunities to work outdoors in the state parks, boating, fishing, wildlife, and forestry fields;
  • Learn skills to become a guide or teach interpretive programs at nature centers or museums;
  • Work on interesting and unique nature projects;

To volunteer with the DEEP:

  1. Determine what program or office you would like to volunteer with.

  2. To obtain additional program information, contact the specific DEEP office directly.

  3. If you are interested in volunteering in a state park, please consider a long-term commitment through the Adopt a Park Program.   Individuals or groups may also submit an application for other opportunities in our parks.  If you have questions regarding volunteering in a state park, please contact Wanda Torres at 860-418-5963 or wanda.torres@ct.gov

  4. If you are interested in volunteering at a location other than a state park, please complete the appropriate application form and submit it to the office where you wish to volunteer.
