Public involvement plays an important part in managing our national
forest lands. Many Region 9 forests, grasslands, and prairies rely
more and more on volunteers to assist with campgrounds and other programs.
Concerned citizens help the forest to provide better wildlife habitat,
identify and preserve historic sites, and build and maintain trails.
We extend a warm welcome to all who wish to volunteer on Region 9
Forests, Grasslands, Prairies.
Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Forest Service. Stewardship
of the national forests is everyone's responsibility. The national
forests, grasslands, and prairies are there for you to enjoy because
many people have served over numerous years to preserve, protect
and improve them. Now you can give something back by volunteering.
Your services are much needed because the Forest Service, like other
government agencies, has a limited budget.
But volunteering isn't just beneficial for the forests, it benefits
you. Simply put, it's fun! It can give you the opportunity to pursue
a special interest, such as bird watching or hiking. It has the
potential to enrich and improve your life. Spending time in the
outdoors, enjoying the company of your fellow volunteers and visitors,
can give you a new perspective on other facets of your life.
To find out how you can volunteer, please contact each Forest,
Grassland or Prairie individually.more »
