Volunteers from the Backcountry Horsemen - Blue Mountain Chapter reconstructing main eagle bridge


Interested in spending your summer in one of the premier areas in northeast Oregon and western Idaho?  If you are, the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest has many unique opportunities waiting to be filled.  By becoming a Forest Service volunteer, you help care for public lands, gain new work skills, provide customer service and work in scenic areas.


In this time of decreasing budgets and increasing public land use, we rely more on volunteers to help care for public lands and serve the public. We need your help!

If you are interested in being a campground host, maintaining backcountry trails, working as a wilderness steward, or living and interpreting the past at historic river residential sites we may have the right opportunity for you! Contact your local Forest Service office in Baker City, La Grande, Joseph, Clarkston or Riggins for more information.
