Volunteer employees

A career with the Forest Service will give you the opportunity to manage and care for more than 193 million acres of our nation’s most magnificent lands; conduct research through a network of forest and range experiment stations and the Forest Products Laboratory; and provide assistance to other government agencies and private landowners. It is a remarkable responsibility, but the rewards are as limitless as the views.
