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 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. You may work on a part-time or full-time basis. You can participate in a one-time project or serve over several months, seasons, or year-round.
you make is up to you. Training may be provided to you if your job
requires it. If you are retired or have summers free, you may wish
to live on a national forest while you work as a volunteer.
Workampers are perfect for many of these positions, because they can bring their housing (RV) with them. Hundreds of openings particularly suited for Workampers are listed each year in Workamper News.
