You love the outdoors and so do we! Help conserve Indiana’s natural heritage by putting your skills to use with the Division of Fish & Wildlife. We welcome people of all backgrounds, talents, skills, and interests. Volunteers help manage and improve habitat, survey and monitor fish and wildlife, and share their knowledge with others through educational programming. Volunteers also contribute photos, observations about nature, and clerical support. We help individuals, families, and groups participate in conservation. We look forward to working with you soon.
