Volunteer Pass Program

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has established a volunteer pass program which enables volunteers who have served a minimum of 100 hours at Corps managed areas to receive a waiver of all day use fees via an Annual Day Use Pass. The purpose of this program is to support and recognize volunteers who have served the Corps in an exemplary way and encourage their visitation and use of Corps parks. The main goal is to increase visitation to Corps parks by enticing volunteers to visit new places, bring friends and family, and continue to explore and enjoy Corps recreation opportunities even after their pass has expired.

Volunteers can accumulate hours toward a pass at multiple Corps projects. Volunteer hours will be verified and entered by the volunteer coordinator into a centralized database. After serving 100 hours of service, the volunteer will be eligible to earn a free Annual Day Use Pass from the local project where they reached their 100th hour. Only one Annual Day Use Pass may be earned per volunteer per year.

As of January 1, 2016 volunteers for the Corps of Engineers are eligible to earn and America the Beautiful Interagency Volunteer Pass for completing 250 cumulative hours of service at any of the participating federal land management agencies (USACE, NPS, BLM, FWS, USDA Forest Service, BLM). Hours should be tracked using the same system as the Corps volunteer annual day use pass. For more information about the volunteer pass, click here.
