The Corps of Engineers is a diverse federal agency offering many volunteer opportunities in recreation and natural resource management. We are the stewards of almost 12 million acres of land and water held in the public trust. We need your help.

As a volunteer, you can gain valuable skills, work outdoors, meet new people, see new areas of the country and achieve a proud sense of contributing to the environment.
