Weekend Volunteers Wanted to Assist with BLM Survey


Do you like working outdoors? Are you a people-person? The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Buffalo Field Office is seeking volunteers to assist them with conducting a Visitor Satisfaction Survey at Weston Hills Recreation Area located 25 miles north of Gillette, Wyo. Availability to work weekends is a must.

The BLM would like to have one or two volunteers working every weekend through the end of August, 2012. Each survey period is four hours in length.

These Visitor Satisfaction Surveys are one part of the BLM’s Recreation and Visitor Services, Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) measure that is annually reported back to Congress. Surveys measure visitors’ satisfaction of our facilities on public lands.

Volunteers are needed July and August. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the BLM and assisting with this survey, please contact Lesly Smith, state volunteer coordinator at (307) 775-6031 or Allison Barnes, field volunteer coordinator at (307) 684-1116.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
