Tour Guides

Meet some of the Park’s visitors on our public walking tours, and help some of the millions who come here discover the Park’s history, ecology, and design.

This volunteer program is not currently accepting candidates.

Tour Guides lead public walking tours throughout the Park, providing an inside perspective for visitors. Guides are selected through a competitive audition process. Training includes: extensive reading, multiple classroom sessions, in-Park homework assignments, and test tours.

To become a Tour Guide, you must:

  • Complete the audition and training processes
  • Commit to give at least one tour per week
  • Have internet access to record work hours and communicate through email
  • Be physically able to walk through various types of terrain
  • Have an excellent sense of direction and a strong knowledge of Park features
