Volunteer

The USDA Forest Service Volunteer Program at Grey Towers has something for almost everyone -- retirees, professionals, students, service clubs and organizations. There are indoor and outdoor work experiences and opportunities for groups and individuals. Volunteering at Grey Towers will give you a chance to pursue a personal interest or put a special skill or hobby to work. Areas of interest include anything from conservation education to history to gardening and more.

Some volunteers work once a week during the busy season while others pitch in for special seasons (Christmas at Grey Towers) or events (conferences, workshops, receptions, concerts and more). Some volunteers donate a few hours each week while others contribute a one-time service. All levels of engagement are welcome, and the opportunities are unlimited. Specific volunteer opportunities include:
