Introducing the Interagency Volunteer Pass

Benefits of the pass? The pass covers entrance and/or standard amenity fees on lands managed by the USDA Forest Service, National Park Service, US Fish & Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, and Bureau of Land Management. Passes are valid for one year from the issuance date.

How Do I Get One? Serve 250 hours as a volunteer on participating Federal public lands and you can receive the Pass in recognition of your efforts. Simply log your service hours with your volunteer supervisor or volunteer coordinator and they can request the pass for you. Find information about how to volunteer with the Forest Service.
