DSCN8021_200x150Volunteers play a major role in operating Henry W. Coe State Park. They provide staff for the Visitor Center, answering questions, describing trails and camping areas, registering visitors and collecting fees, and selling store merchandise. Volunteers lead guided walks and more strenuous hikes; maintain trails and springs, give evening programs for campers; publish maps, interpretive leaflets, and trail guides, do trail patrol, and more!

The Pine Ridge Association, in cooperation with Henry W. Coe State Park staff, conducts a training program for uniformed volunteers. This year's volunteer training program will begin on Saturday, September 10. We are busy putting this year's training program together which will include talks and hikes covering volunteer duties, history and the physical environment of the area, plants and animals of Coe Park, interacting with park visitors, and a weekend touring the backcountry.
