Volunteers in Action

Volunteering with the Walla Walla District

Do you want to make a difference?

Volunteers are essential to helping USACE complete its missions and manage public lands.

We welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities. Working alone or with a group, our volunteers enjoy work that matches their interests and schedules. Some volunteers serve part-time and others enjoy a seasonal or full-time position. The important thing to remember is that even a few hours a month can make a big difference. Volunteering can offer a valuable experience and lifelong memories.

As a volunteer you will represent the US Army Corps of Engineers. You will work in unique settings and be part of a team that works together to conserve our nations recreation and natural resources keeping valuable assets accessible to the public.  Based on your job assignment, you may wear an official volunteer uniform. A free campsite and reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses may also be available. You will be covered for worker’s compensation in the event of an injury while on duty and, in the event of property damage or personal injury, you will be covered for tort claim liability.  Volunteer time can also be counted as work experience for future jobs. If you are interested in serving the community or travel somewhere new, this is your chance!

Those under 18 years of age may volunteer with the official, signed permission of a parent or guardian. Check out USACE opportunities in your area at www.volunteer.gov. Differing opportunities vary with each area. There are many opportunities to volunteer with the Walla Walla District.

A variety of jobs are available, either in an office environment or outdoors. Your talents and skills are matched with your work preference to obtain a role that satisfies you and best fulfills the mission of the Walla Walla District.  In many cases, Volunteer Park Hosts, and Park Gate Attendants, are the first contact the public has with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Come help us put our best face forward!

Volunteer positions on www.volunteer.gov may include:

  • Campground or Park Maintenance
  • Campground Host
  • Visitor Center Host
  • Gate House Attendant
  • Visitor Information
  • Tour Guide
  • General Assistance

Visit Volunteer.gov online to search and apply for volunteer opportunities that suit your interest and availability. The Volunteer.gov serves as a matchmaker, pairing enthusiastic workers with USACE lakes and projects that can use their services, providing both with a memorable experience.


Want to volunteer for a day?

There are also opportunities to participate in one-time volunteering events, including National Public Lands Day, community pick-up days and other single-day events where groups or individuals can come clean public lands by performing maintenance and picking up trash.
