Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Forest Service. Volunteers may work on a part-time or full-time basis. They can participate in a one-time project or serve over several months, seasons, or year-round. Training may be provided when the job requires it.
A variety of jobs are available whether you prefer an office environment, the social life of a camp host, or vigorous physical labor outdoors. The only tasks a volunteer cannot carry out are those associated with law enforcement.
If you are retired or have summers free, you may wish to become a volunteer. Contact one of the following for more information: Rosann Fillmore, Bill Broadbear, or Brian Murdock
