The Bitterroot National Forest is located in western Montana.
Where is this Forest?



A variety of volunteer opportunities may be available at any one of our Bitterroot National Forest Service offices. Opportunities range from office settings to field going.

Additionally, the Bitterroot National Forest has many developed campgrounds situated in beautiful settings. Campground hosts play an important role in assisting with the management of these beautiful areas and working with the public. Camp hosts are rewarded with a place to stay during the summer, lasting friendships, and a sense of pride in the work accomplished in making the developed sites safe and communicating with the public about our National Forests.
