Volunteering on the Wayne National Forest


Each Ranger District and the Forest Supervisor's Office has its own volunteer program that may include trail maintenance or other opportunities. Your talents and skills are matched with your work preference to obtain a role that satisfies you and best fulfills the mission of the USDA Forest Service. You may work on a part-time or full-time basis. You can participate in a one-time project or serve over several months, seasons, or year-round. The commitment you make is up to you. Training may be provided to you if your job requires it.

In fiscal year 2018, the Forest had more than 711 volunteers who contributed 36,825 hours of volunteer service. The value of the time the volunteers contributed is estimated at $909,209.00.
