Why volunteer for BLM Wyoming?

Volunteering provides the following opportunities to:

  • experience world class fishing

Who can volunteer for BLM Wyoming?

Any U.S. citizen or an individual with official immigrant status (by marriage or green card) over the age of 8-years-old is eligible to volunteer. Children between 8 and 16-years-old must either volunteer with their parents or be part of an organized youth, church, or school group.

What about non-citizens?

Unfortunately, BLM is unable to directly accept international volunteers. We can work with third-party voluntary service organizations that specialize in obtaining assignments for international volunteers.

What kind of work can I do for BLM Wyoming?

Volunteers can participate in almost any BLM program where a need has been identified. Some of the assignments that volunteers have accomplished include trail work, wildlife monitoring, visitor contact, restoring riparian areas, planting trees, mapping, and computer input. The only areas where volunteers are prohibited from working involve law enforcement, fire suppression or as a part of special use flights.
