Unique Opportunities

Type: Short-term and long-term individuals and groups
Dates: Year-round, but mostly summer
Status: Not currently hiring

Quick summary: The list of positions on this website is never all-inclusive of all of the possibilities. In fact, there have been many volunteer positions over the years that have existed for a time, and then gone away when the need was met; or whose jobs are currently being performed by paid staff. Sometimes the need is ephemeral, lasting only a single instance, but these volunteers are no less important. Here's a list of examples:

  • Accessibility assessment
  • Administrative assistant
  • Carbon River property cleanup
  • Climate change intern
  • CPR/First aid trainer
  • Culvert clearing
  • Engineering design
  • Exhibit installation
  • Flood documentation
  • Gardener
  • GIS specialist
  • Historical research
  • Japanese interpreter
  • Lakes/Aquatics/Fish crew
  • Librarian
  • Management planning
  • Moving assistance (e.g. between the old and new visitor centers)
  • Natural resources field office assistant
  • Oral history interviews
  • Painter
  • Poster mailing
  • Snow play ranger
  • Stream surveys
For further information: Volunteer Program Manager Kevin Bacher, 360-569-2211 ext. 3385
To apply: Why include a list of obsolete positions? To make the point that there are always new opportunities cropping up, often with little notice. Watch this blog for announcements of new opportunities, or write to have your name added to our mailing list.
