NEW! Volunteer Hours Portal

State Parks has implemented a new statewide volunteer portal for logging hours called Better Impact. Marshall Gold Discovery SHP has implemented this system and is asking all volunteers to log their hours on this new system.

Your historic hours through October 2018 have been uploaded to your profile. If you are current on logging your hours, Staff will carry over and input to the new system any hours you logged on the old system between November 1, 2018 and February 1, 2019. If you haven't been keeping up on logging hours, please use the new system to log any hours since November 1, 2018.

Instructions for logging hours on the new site

  1. Go to the volunteer website at

  2. You will be asked for a username and password. If you don’t know what these are, please contact the volunteer coordinator.

  3. Once you are logged in, click on the HOURS tab at the top of the page.

  4. Under Log Hours, be sure the Active tab is clicked (it will appear faded).

  5. From the pull down menu, select the activity you completed. Please choose the category that best fits what you did that day in the park.

  6. Complete the Date Volunteered and the Hours you worked.

  7. Click the SAVE button.


If you can’t remember if you logged a particular day, or if you want to check to see how many hours you have accumulated, click the REPORTS tab at the top of the page. This will show your hours by month and also enables you to view a Detailed Hours Report at the bottom of the page.

Please download and use the Better Impact User Manual using the link at right to further explore this new volunteer portal.


Thank you for all you do at the park!
