Volunteer Training

Our volunteer orientations are designed to give you all the information you need about a particular volunteer activity. It is a great opportunity to meet with the coordinator, learn about the activity, and meet other volunteers. Please feel free to attend any or all orientations.

All orientations are held at the Visitor Center. If you want to get involved but cannot attend a scheduled orientation, please call as some coordinators will provide individual training.

To RSVP or for more information, please click here, or contact Andy Reynolds at 845-255-0919 x1269 or

Please Note: Youth Nature Ambassadors require an application (due by April 6th). For more information, click here.

Training and orientations are subject to change due to inclement weather, so if in doubt, please call the Visitor Center at 845-255-0919.
