volunteers, Cabrillo National Monument Foundation

The Volunteer-In-Parks program (VIP) provides essential and fundamental support for park operations every day. There are 200+ active and dedicated volunteers that give more than 17,000 hours annually. Volunteers assist with natural, cultural and historical aspects of interpretation, visitor services, and conservation. The park receives a modest amount of federal funds for the volunteer program but these funds are limited and restricted, so funding from the Foundation is crucial and appreciated.
