VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Volunteers play a vital role for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  As a Volunteer, you are a part of a team that includes Management, Administration, Park Rangers, Service Contractors and volunteers.  This team works together to conserve our national recreation resources and keep these valuable areas available to the public. In many cases, Volunteers are the first contact the public has with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The primary functions of a volunteer are providing hospitality and customer service to lake guests, assisting in the upkeep of lake facilities, and promoting safe and responsible use of Corps of Engineers amenities.  Additionally, Volunteers provide valuable information on how to improve our lake by maintaining open communication with Rangers and pass on ideas for improvement gathered during daily contact with visitors. 

W. Kerr Scott Lake Volunteers have taken on many different roles. Some volunteers work in the Visitor Assistance Center as a receptionist, program leader in the Environmental Education Center, or along the shoreline picking up litter. Each volunteer has a positive impact on the operation of W. Kerr Scott Lake. Whether you work as a volunteer for the day creating a trail or for the summer as a park host, you will make a difference.
