Email: Camp Host US Volunteers

National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest volunteer service effort designed to improve and enhance America's public lands. In 2008, 120,000 volunteers built trails and bridges, removed trash and invasive plants and planted over 1.6 million trees.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics calculates the national value per volunteer hour is $19.51. Federal and state parks have discovered the value of RV volunteers. RV volunteers are in high demand at these parks. We hope in the future large cities will take the necessary steps to attract volunteer camp hosts eager to volunteer their services and at the same time experience travel to the large cities. It is our hope cities will also recognize how RV volunteers could provide much needed services for their citizens.
To accomplish this symbiotic relationship forward looking cities must first build designated RV volunteer sites in strategically placed locations throughout the cities. The sites could be placed near beaches, museums, zoos, libraries, parks, hospitals, government buildings, airports, bike paths, gardens, stadiums or other areas able to utilize volunteers. These RV sites would then be exchanged for volunteer services. The relatively low cost to construct the RV sites ($10,000 to $15,000 per campsite) would be offset by the increase in a diverse and experienced workforce. The work history of RV volunteers is broad, ranging from academia to the trades.
It is our firm belief that cities willing and able to provide the RV sites in exchange for an expanded quality workforce will find, just as state and national parks have found, exchanging RV sites for volunteer hours, is a most beneficial arrangement. These cities will be the best equipped to reap the rewards of the new wave of voluntourism and with it the benefits these volunteers will provide in the future.
This is one of those win-win situations and our hope for the future.

THE FIRST BLM PIT PROJECT WAS A SUCCESS!

by Carolyn J. McClellan, Chief
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was pleased to offer its first PIT project called Weaving Connections in northwestern California this past summer (2007). This project brought together volunteers, California Indian basket weavers, and BLM staff to work on clearing a hazel patch for future harvest, harvesting and cleaning spruce root, and working on a basket start. We even had our own bluegrass concert by Gina Jorgenson (BLM Student Career Experience Program student) and her family. Everyone had a great time!
Stories in Stone: Rock Art Pictures by Early Americans

I am now working with BLM staff in Wyoming on developing a PIT project at a petroglyph site known as Legend Rock, near Thermopolis, WY for summer 2008. We have several different projects there that need assistance: 1) finishing photographing and recording the many petroglyph panels at the site; 2) conducting oral history interviews of local citizens to record their history and significance of the site; and 3) developing interpretive displays from these histories for an on-site visitor center.

Several states have identified potential PIT projects in their respective areas so please stay tuned as the BLM prepares additional volunteer opportunities for jointly managing our cultural resources on public lands in the years to come.

Volunteer Terms Of Use



V Outdoors is an on line, search able database of volunteer and training events hereafter "Volunteer Opportunities" offered by Colorado's land managers, nonprofit organizations, community groups, and community organizations (hereafter "Organizational Users") connecting individuals and groups with volunteer stewardship opportunities. V Outdoors is a free service, open to any person or Organizational User and is intended to provide information and registration services for outdoor related Volunteer Opportunities. Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (hereafter VOC) hosts and administers the V Outdoors web site and database management system.


Volunteer Opportunities (including educational events and internships) that fall within the following definition of stewardship (adopted from the Blueprint for Outdoor Stewardship) are included on V Outdoors:

  • Promoting conservation and sustainability,

  • Caring for the health of the land for future generations,

  • Providing educational opportunities,

  • Active care for and management of resources with the goal of improving or maintaining ecological health.

Organizational Users have agreed that they will make no use of your information except for the purposes specified in this paragraph (e.g. communication with you and determination of physical capacity).


Information provided through registration for a specific Volunteer Opportunity is for the sole use of the organization posting that opportunity and cannot be accessed by other Organizational Users of the V Outdoors web site and database management system.
