No matter what your training, experiences, or area of interest, there likely is a volunteer position for you in a field that interests you—trail work, campground hosting, bird surveys, information receptionist, range conservation, wilderness restoration, conservation education, and others.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering can provide valuable experience and lifelong memories.  Opportunities range from a single-day project to a long-term undertaking lasting for several months. The Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest is a resource we all share. You may help fulfill the Forest Service mission, at the same time you:

  • Earn college credits with volunteer internships
  • Diversify your job experience
  • Provide community service
  • Increase your career choices
  • Meet people and form new friendships

Give it a try!  For more information, please contact the GMUG National Forest Volunteer Coordinator: Dylan Peters (970) 874- 6625 or Kim Phillips (970) 874-6717.
