Organized By: Morgan Duke Conservation Society

James Sullivan

Here ar Morgan Duke Conservation Society, we have partnered with Great Smoky Mountains National Park to allow residents, visitors, students, and groups to become a volunteer with Morgan Duke Conservation Society to help protect wildlife and their habitat and the environment from the garbage. Litter patrol volunteers are a self-guided opportunity to explore Great Smoky Mountains National Park while removing debris. This program is called the parkwide litter patrol. Volunteers can visit anywhere in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on federal land areas, including Cades Cove, or they can pick their favorite place to remove litter.

There are no set number of hours you must work, no set schedules, and no minimum number of times you must volunteer. Volunteers will be assigned to a volunteer coordinator who can report to their coordinator anytime if they have any questions or concerns. Volunteers can join the Morgan Duke Conservation Society workplace online to connect with other volunteers at Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
