Love Coe Park? You can help us keep it beautiful and available to all by becoming a Coe Volunteer.

Henry W. Coe State Park Uniformed Volunteers assist park staff in so many ways. Volunteers help build and maintain the trails you walk/ride/bike on. Volunteers operate the Coe Ranch Visitor and help you plan your adventures. Volunteers lead walks and talks on many topics, including wildflowers, birds, fungi, trees, geology, animal tracking, photography, sketching and nature journaling.

The Uniformed Volunteer program at Henry W. Coe State Park is based upon the state's Volunteers In Parks Program. The Pine Ridge Association, the park's cooperating association, provides support for volunteer training and operations. Coe Park volunteers provide support for the PRA's events including the Tarantula Festival, Ranch Day, Raincoats & Rubber Boots, Mother's Day Breakfast, 5k/10K Fun Run and the Backcountry Weekend.
