ODFW Volunteer Programs - Volunteer Host Program

2018 / 2019

As a fish and wildlife volunteer host, you will be joining other RV owners from across the nation who live and work for a month or more at one of our state hatcheries, wildlife areas or offices.

You can use your skills and experience to help Oregon's fish and wildlife. It is a great opportunity to try new things, meet new people, and have fun!

There are 46 sites throughout the state to choose from

  • ODFW's goal is to match you to a site that suits your interests, abilities and skills.
  • Most of ODFW's sites provide full hook-up, are quiet, peaceful and are located close to recreational opportunities.
  • Volunteer hosts typically stay a month or longer at a site, volunteering an average of 20 hours per week.

Sample Volunteer Host Job Duties

Volunteer Host job duties vary by location, but may include:

  • Landscaping, gardening and other ground maintenance
  • Carpentry projects
  • Assisting with farming to benefit wildlife
  • Improving habitat
  • Clerical and computer work
  • Raising and stocking fish
  • Greeting visitors
  • Giving tours
  • Assisting with public outreach activities
