Make a Difference as a Volunteer at the Monongahela National Forest

Volunteers of all ages and abilities are needed and valued at the Monongahela National Forest. With nearly a million acres of scenic, natural, and recreational wonders, volunteers are a big part of helping the Forest reach its annual goals. The interests and talents of volunteers can help with nearly every aspect of the work, except law enforcement and firefighting. 

Tygarts Valley Student Planting DayAs a volunteer, the work you do will help to improve conditions in the Forest. Benefits to volunteers include learning about natural and cultural conservation, contributing to local communities through service projects, and making new friends.

Volunteering is also a great way to teach youth the value of public service, especially if they engage in a project that involves the entire family. Individuals, civic groups, and other types of organizations are all welcome. Volunteer activities can be tailored to your specific talents and interests, and you might even learn new skills.

Monongahela National Forest is seeking volunteers for several positions. Get all the details at our volunteer page.
