Volunteer opportunities for hunters
By Sandy Reith, volunteer coordinator, Arizona Game and Fish Department
The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s volunteer program provides opportunities for volunteers to participate firsthand in managing Arizona’s wildlife resources. Our goal is to provide you with a congenial and cooperative atmosphere where you can build relationships with staff and other volunteers, and gain knowledge about Arizona wildlife and wildlife management. We recognize that your time is important, and strive to provide rewarding and educational volunteer experiences.

We’ve listed some opportunities below that we think you might find interesting. To take part, learn about other opportunities, or submit information about a project that would benefit from our volunteers, check our volunteer page.

Upcoming projects:
Construct a shade structure for a pronghorn facility
Volunteers are needed to add shade cloth to the Sonoran pronghorn captive breeding facility near Ajo, and to help build an irrigation system that will provide natural forage for pronghorn. Work will be done throughout October and November. Contact our volunteer coordinator at 623-236-7680.

Help clean up the Table Mesa Road area
