Volunteer Opportunities

Passionate hunters and anglers who have time to volunteer to make a difference will find no shortage of opportunities with the Wyoming Wildlife Federation. You can choose to donate your time to fundraising events, habitat projects, and/or via advocacy to make an impact on the future of Wyoming’s wildlife, habitat, and outdoor opportunities.

Habitat projects are headed up by the Habitat Coordinator, Sam Lockwood. You can learn more about the habitat improvements program by contacting Sam at Slockwood@wyomingwildlife.org, or by reading more here. 

WWF is always looking for excited advocates to engage in policy, wildlife regulation, and legislation across the state. If you want specific information about the government affairs volunteer opportunities, please contact Jess Johnson at jessjohnson@wyomingwildlife.org or visit Camo at the Capitol.

Love kids and spending time outside? Consider spending a few days with our outdoor skills and science camps. You’ll help kids complete experiments and learn new skills and probably get your fill of knock-knock jokes and tag at the same time. WWF welcomes junior assistants (12-15) and adult volunteers with a clear background check. Reach out to abarbknecht@wyomingwildlife.org for more information on camp ages, dates, and volunteer needs.

For all other volunteer inquiries, email info@wyomingwildlife.org.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Beaver Rim Fence Pull | June 8, 2024

If you're near Fremont County, WY, join us to get your hands dirty for wildlife on June 8th, 2024!

This is our 14th annual fence removal project with our friends at the Red Canyon Chapter of RMEF, in partnership with Lander BLM, and with support from Bowhunters of Wyoming.

This year, we're pulling a section of fence 30 miles southeast of Lander where deer, elk, and pronghorn regularly roam. It's also a critical area for Twin Creek Sage-grouse populations.

Grizzly WHMA Fence Day | June 15, 2024

The Grizzly WHMA Volunteer Fence Day, set for June 15, 2024, marks a significant milestone in wildlife conservation efforts within the Baggs Mule Deer Migration Corridor. This event is the culmination of a multi-year project aimed at replacing 17 miles of old and ineffective fencing with wildlife-friendly alternatives. The project's location, deep in Wyoming's vast landscapes, often poses a logistical challenge due to its distance from major towns. It's an initiative that not only seeks to enhance animal safety and mobility but also engages community members directly in conservation efforts.

Become a hunting or fishing mentor (Fremont County)

WWF is working with First Hunt Foundation, WGFD, and WCC to show new adult hunters and fishers the ropes. We are setting newbies up with mentors to take them out in the field and help them get their feet under them as they figure things out. You don't have to be an expert to be a mentor, just have a bit of time, a bit of experience, and a love for the discipline and the resource. Time commitment is up to you, from a few days to a lifetime with a new outdoor friend. First Hunt Foundation provides liability coverage and mentor resources as needed. Reach out to abarbknecht@wyomingwildlife.org for more information.
