Start Date: 3/21/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/21/2014End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
From maintaining trails to entering computer data, Hoosiers can celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, by donating their time and talent to Indiana’s state parks and reservoirs.

"Volunteering gives you a great sense of accomplishment,” said Jody Heaston, volunteer coordinator for DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs. “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 Indiana’s state parks and reservoirs.
