Be a Volunteer

You can make a difference!

Volunteers help the BLM in California to complete unfunded conservation work that would otherwise go undone. The program provides individuals and community organizations an opportunity to be actively involved in helping to better manage our public lands. 

How to Volunteer

To become a volunteer, complete and submit a Volunteer Application (Form 1114-10) to the office nearest you to help match skills and interest with volunteer opportunities.

You can also search existing volunteer needs using the Find a Volunteer Opportunity search feature at

Volunteer Agreement

Once you are matched to a volunteer opportunity, a Volunteer Services Agreement for Natural Resources Agencies (Individuals or Groups) (Form OF301A, revised 09/2010) is signed by you and your volunteer supervisor. 

The BLM has 16 Field Offices in California. Our location map shows the jurisdiction of each of the Field Offices, as well as address, telephone number, and name of the Field Manager for each office.

Who is eligible

Anyone over the age of 18 years can volunteer. Youth under the age of 18 must volunteer with a parent/guardian or be a part of an organized youth group such as a school, civic, or church group. Youth volunteers must have written parental or guardian consent.
