Volunteering with RMFI During the COVID-19 Pandemic
There have been many inquiries about giving back to our public lands, and we appreciate your enthusiasm, but this will be a slow process and many may not get the opportunity to volunteer with RMFI this season due to group size restrictions and limited volunteer opportunities. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this time.
Please review our FAQs from volunteers during the COVID-19 pandemic prior to registering for this volunteer day. At this time, we are only allowing volunteers who are 18 years of age or older to participate in our volunteer days. In addition, if you are part of an at-risk group or age 65+, you are encouraged to continue to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. Also, if you live with or are in close contact with vulnerable individuals, we ask that you reconsider participating in RMFI activities at this time.
Again, we appreciate your patience as we begin to slowly and safely navigate our reintroduction of volunteer days!

Check back often as our calendar will continue to fill with Community Volunteer Workdays, Courses, and Special Events throughout the year. We will host projects through November!
Schedule is subject to change. Pre-registration is required for all Community Volunteer Workdays, and all Courses & Trainings. Volunteers must be committed to attending the full duration of the workdays for which they register. If plans change, please unregister through the website or let us know as soon as possible. We plan our work tasks, tools, and staffing based on expected group size.
