Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Forest Service. As a volunteer, you can participate in a one-time project or serve over several months, seasons, or year-round. You can turn a volunteer position into an internship and receive college credit or join a partner service crew and receive a stipend. The commitment you make is up to you.
