– and Make a Difference!
The Bureau of
Land Management (BLM), an agency within the U.S. Department of the
Interior, administers 261 million surface acres of America's public
lands, located primarily in 12 Western States. The BLM sustains the
health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use
and enjoyment of present and future generations.
More than 17,000 volunteers support the work of the BLM each year,
from conducting field work in remote locations to serving as camphosts
at the BLM's many recreation sites.
Hundreds of Workampers
volunteer each year at dozens of BLM sites. Here is a sample of the
BLM opportunities listed in Workamper News:
