The Deschutes National Forest in partnership with Discover Your Forest is hosting a Volunteer Recruitment Event Mid-November to find volunteers interested in providing support for programs at Mt Bachelor and other locations on the Forest.

The Volunteer Recruitment event will be held on Thursday, November 12th, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Deschutes National Forest, Bend-Fort Rock Ranger District, 63095 Deschutes Market Road, in Bend. The event is focused on recruiting volunteers to serve as winter interpretive rangers and winter conservation education rangers; however, people interested in other volunteer opportunities are welcomed to attend the event.

Volunteer Rangers will represent the U.S. Forest Service at Mt. Bachelor. Programs taking place this winter include: Ski with a FS Interpretive Ranger, Snowshoe with a FS Interpretive Ranger, our youth education based programs Project S.N.O.W and Jr. Snow Ranger. Duties include delivering mile long snowshoe tours or skiing blue ski runs while providing formal interpretive talks. Volunteers are provided uniforms and training and should be willing to wear appropriate gear and have the physical ability to ski two runs daily or snowshoe one mile twice daily.
