The Game and Fish department hopes to help as many people as possible learn about wildlife, its habitat and its conservation. Because our staff is limited, much of this effort depends on volunteers. Anyone interested in helping people learn more about wildlife and the outdoors, check out the volunteer projects below and contact us.
- Boat and Water Safety - Teach about water safety using the Boating Basics Course and hands-on learning trunk.
- Conservation Volunteers - Assist in outdoor activities such as planting trees, maintaining properties, collecting and entering data, and work at area lakes.
- Fur Harvester Education - Share your knowledge and expertise with all ages and levels of fur hunters and trappers, from beginners to veterans. You do not need to be an experienced trapper to help teach this course. Individuals with a background in teaching or knowledge of furbearer biology are encouraged to become instructors.
- Habitats of North Dakota (for K-12 Educators) - Habitats of North Dakota materials promote teaching and learning about wildlife conservation and resource management. There are five Habitats of North Dakota texts available that cover Wetlands, Prairie, Badlands, Woodlands and Riparian areas. Each text is illustrated and greatly enhanced with color photographs provided by the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
- Hooked on Fishing - Teach basics of fishing, aquatic habitats and fish species found in the state. Take students fishing with Department provided equipment.
- Hunter Education - Teach students about safe firearms handling, wildlife conservation and hunter ethics.
