Elko, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management, Elko District is looking for volunteer campground hosts at the Wilson Reservoir and North Wildhorse campgrounds, both located north of Elko.
Selected volunteers will act as the BLM representative at the site and welcome visitors and provide information. Tasks include interacting with visitors, providing information about the area and other safe places to explore, conducting occasional tours, maintaining the restrooms and campgrounds, and reporting any vandalism, accidents, or natural hazards.
The BLM will provide training, cost reimbursement, a sheltered RV spot at Wilson with water and rustic accommodations at North Wildhorse. Both campgrounds are fairly remote and cell phone access is limited. The position is available immediately and would last through September 30, five to six days a week, three to four hours per day.
You will receive a variety of training on tools, equipment, fee collection, volunteer policy, safety, and camper satisfaction from the BLM before your volunteer engagement.
For more information, visit the Elko District website at www.blm.gov/rv5c under ‘What we do, Recreation,’ or call Zachary Pratt at (775) 753-0212.
