Volunteering with the Lincoln National Forest provides you a great opportunity to:

  • Give back to your community
  • Improve National Forests and Grasslands
  • Learn about natural and cultural conservation
  • Meet new people and form friendships

Get involved with the Lincoln National Forest through volunteering! Whether individually, with your family, community organization, or business, the Forest has opportunities for us to work together to care for the land. Volunteers can get started by filling out a Volunteer application with your interests and identifying the best fit. We’ve had volunteers work with specialists doing wildlife surveys, trail maintenance, construction, mapping, and research. You can also partner with local volunteer groups that have regular volunteer work days.

If you're interested in ancient or more recent history and enjoy camping, the Passport in Time (PIT) Program is a great way to assist our archaeologists in preserving and learning about our past.

Contact the Lincoln National Forest to get a Volunteer Agreement or for more information: 575-434-7200. Thank you for your efforts!
