Montana Earth Team Volunteer Program

Montana's Earth Team volunteers work side-by-side with conservation professionals. The soil conservationists, technicians, scientists, wildlife biologists, engineers, accounting and administrative staff are all committed to helping people protect and conserve the earth's natural resources. By volunteering, you will help your community, your country, and our Earth. In addition, you will learn new skills, meet new people, and be part of a dedicated conservation effort.

Earth Team Montana Volunteer Stories


Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older and be United States citizens or citizens of allied countries.

Your skills and interests are matched to the agency's needs.

When you sign up as an Earth Team Volunteer, you are on your way to becoming a caretaker of natural resources in your community. When you volunteer, you may assist with improving wildlife habitat, collecting soil samples, identifying areas with invasive species, providing conservation education to adults and students, community outreach, and many more interesting opportunities. Whatever your talents or interests might be, there is a volunteer opportunity for you with the Earth Team.
