Volunteering at Cape Perpetua & the Oregon Dunes

The Siuslaw National Forest is looking for volunteers interested in helping out at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, the Devil’s Churn Information Center, the Oregon Dunes Day Use and Oregon Dunes Visitor Center. Volunteers in these areas will reap the rewards that come from helping people get the most out of their coast vacations.

Visitor and Information Center volunteers help people plan their trips, pick the right recreational activity for their family or identify the flower they saw along a trail. Staffing a Visitor Center may also include operating video equipment and conducting book and recreation pass sales.

Volunteers can also answer questions and provide information while staffing popular viewpoints and trailheads such as the Oregon Dunes Day Use. Leading guided hikes and presenting talks is also an opportunity for those that want to try their hand at being a “park ranger.”

Forest Service uniforms and training are required and provided.

Volunteer Application

Applications can also be picked up at the Forest Service offices in Reedsport, Waldport and Cape Perpetua Visitor Center.
