Many of the educational programs, nature hikes, trail maintenance, work days, and other special events at Newport State Park wouldn’t happen without the fabulous support of volunteers and friends like you.

We communicate our volunteer needs via a centralized email group. If you would like to be notified about opportunities for volunteering for special events (Candlelight Ski, Newport Wilderness Days, Dark Sky events) or for clean-up and work days in the park, click this link and request to join our email group.

Volunteering at Newport always involves fun…and often involves food! Thanks for your interest in helping out at the park!

Many of our educational programs are led by experts who work closely with the Park Naturalist to produce natural history outings and other outings for park visitors. If you are interested in volunteering and sharing your expertise, please contact Beth Bartoli directly. She can be reached in the Park Office (920-854-2500) or by email.
