Parks —Each year, park volunteers serve as campground hosts, visitor center attendants, naturalists, and assistants on special projects. They volunteer so that current and future generations may enjoy these special places as much as they have. [Learn more]
Check Stations—Check station volunteers measure elk and deer antlers, pull incisor teeth for aging, and collect information from hunters regarding where and how they hunted and their success. It is a good opportunity to get your hands dirty and to interact with the public. Those with experience, and/or desire, will have the opportunity to undertake the messier tasks (e.g., pulling teeth). Those who would rather observe such tasks will be asked to record and tally information. For more information, contact the region where you would like to volunteer.
Fishing Instructors —Youth leaders, classroom teachers, fishing club members, and civic leaders are encouraged to serve as volunteer fishing instructors. Start an after-school fishing club, offer a summer enrichment class, build a school event around a fishing clinic, assist with a local school program, or host a fishing clinic in your own community.

Wildlife Center Rehabilitation —At the Center we care for mammals such as bears from around the state. Caring for these animals takes a lot of time and volunteers are the backbone of our program. Call (406) 444-9944 to learn more about volunteering.
Wolf Program —The wolf program periodically uses volunteers to assist with field-based monitoring efforts to document wolf activity in the spring and summer months. Volunteers may also help with other field work such as wolf-livestock conflict management or data entry. [Learn more]
