Volunteering with the Forest Service in the Pacific Northwest
Volunteering on your public lands is a great way to spend a summer, jump-start your career, or serve your country. If you volunteer with the Forest Service or one of our partners, you can build trails, help maintain facilities and grounds, and greet visitors in our visitor centers. To learn more about the Forest Service’s national volunteer program, or to find information about volunteering outside of Oregon and Washington, you can check out our national volunteering website.

In the coming months, please visit this website for updates on post-fire restoration volunteer opportunities.
