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

Baggs Migration Corridor Fence Modification & Camp Out | June 24-25, 2023

Attendees are invited to arrive and camp at the Grizzly WHMA Game & Fish cabins on Friday, June 24th before working on the fence project the entire day of Saturday, June 25th. There is an optional work morning on Sunday, June 26th before workers disband for the weekend.

This area is in the heart of the Baggs Mule Deer Migration Corridor, and is critical for the survival of pronghorn, elk, and other species as well.

We are expecting folks to camp in the area because the project site can be over an hour's drive from Rawlins, so lodging opportunities are limited while traveling to and from the site from a larger Wyoming town will make for a very long day on Saturday. There are no facilities at the cabins, other than an outhouse, so be prepared with your own food, water and overnight camping gear. Water, gatorade, and soda will be provided by WWF and Game & Fish along with lunch on Saturday. Don't forget to come prepared with work gloves, fencing pliers, and clothing to take on the possible weather conditions of June in Wyoming.

Support for this project is provided in part by Rocky Mountain Power & The Laura Jane Musser Fund.

Fremont County Fence Removal | July 2023 *Tentatively*

The annual Fremont County Fence Removal takes place on public lands to get rid of obsolete fencing that is inhibiting the natural movements of big game species. Please stay tuned for more location-specific information. This project is supported in part by Bowhunters of Wyoming.

Lander Community Cookout | Aug. 26, 2023

The Wyoming Wildlife Federation is bringing back the wild game cookout and raffle to celebrate the local hunting and angling community while telling stories from the season.

There are multiple opportunities to contribute wild game dishes, support raffles and games, or help set up and tear down. Contact Joe Spence at jspence@wyomingwildlife.org if you would like to get involved.

Camo at the Capitol | February 15, 2024

The Camo at the Capitol day includes advocacy training and legislative action days at the Wyoming State Capitol. More details to come.

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.
