Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Forest Service. The types of work a volunteer can perform are many and varied; the only tasks a volunteer cannot carry out are those associated with fire, and law enforcement. Your talents and skills are matched with your work preference to obtain a role that satisfies you and best fulfills the mission of the Forest Service/USDA. A variety of jobs are available if you prefer the office environment.


Mark Twain National Forest Volunteer Services Coordinator is Jane Mobley, if you have a specific volunteer project idea or are interested in what volunteer opportunities we have or any other questions about volunteering, contact Jane Mobley at bessie.mobley@usda.gov or by phone at 573-996-2153 (Office) or 573-208-9652(Cell).
