Volunteers Needed

There are lots of ways that you can help. Come be a part of the team!

Visitor Center Volunteers

We are currently seeking volunteers who can help in the Visitor Center Monday-Sunday mornings or afternoons.  We are looking for a few extra folks so that we can have an alternating or rotating schedule that supports plenty of flexibility for our volunteers as we understand Saturdays are a popular time for many other activities.  Morning shifts are 9am - 12:30pm, and afternoon shifts are 12:30pm - 4pm.  The visitor center is open year-round and supported entirely by park volunteers.  All proceeds from sales in the Visitor Center directly support Paynes Prairie.  We are also looking for volunteers to cover the Friends' Trailer at La Chua trail on Saturdays and Sundays for shifts of 9am-1pm or 1pm-5pm. Please contact Tracie to learn more.

Ranger Station Volunteers

Volunteer 4 hours per week, on Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays.

Resource Management Team

The park is also assembling a resource management team for seasonal maintenance along the Gainesville-Hawthorne Trail and selected trails, and fence repair and removal.

Additional Positions

Additional positions include grant writer/coordinator, fundraiser, and event coordinator.
