If you like people and care about our country's natural resources, the Forest Service needs your time and talents.

Some volunteers work full-time for several months, while others donate a few hours a day each week or contribute a one-time service. Students may volunteer to earn college credits through a college-approved intern program, or to become familiar with Forest Service activities and philosophy. Many individuals have found that their volunteer experience has guided them towards job interest and possible careers. Retirees or others with skills to share often find that a volunteer position provides them with a nice change of pace.
