Volunteer Park Hosts (greeters) play vital role for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As a Park Host you are a part of a team that includes Volunteers, Service Contractors, Park Rangers, Management and Administration. This team works together to conserve our national recreation resources and keep these valuable areas available to the public. In many cases, Park Hosts, and Gate Attendants, are the first contact the public has with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Park Hosts are long term volunteers who make extended stays (usually 3+ months) at campgrounds located in scenic areas as a part of the project team. A choice campsite is reserved at no charge for these volunteers during their commitment to a project.
