America the Beautiful – Volunteer Pass

1 min read

If you volunteer at federal recreation sites, you can get a free annual pass. It is awarded to volunteers who have put in 250 or more hours at one or more federal recreation sites. This is an annual entrance permit to federal parks, monuments, historic sites, and recreation areas. Depending on the park, either the pass holder and people in the car with them, or up to four adults are admitted with a Volunteer Pass. There is no charge for children under 16. You can use the pass for one year from the date you receive it.


How do I apply?

You do not have to apply for the Volunteer Pass. Instead, once your 250 service hours have been reached, the pass will be issued to you. To find out how you can volunteer, you can ask about volunteer opportunities at any local federal recreation land sites managed by the five federal agencies listed above or go to: www.volunteer.gov/gov.
