How to Become a BLM Volunteer?

Volunteer Image - No captionBLM welcomes volunteers from all walks of life: whatever your interest, there's a volunteer opportunity to match. And what a great chance for families to come together with a purpose. The BLM in California recruits volunteers to assist with the completion of unfunded conservation work that would otherwise go undone. The program provides individuals and community organizations an opportunity to be actively involved in the administration of public lands. 

See the great accomplishments done by our many volunteers.
