Jackson National Fish Hatchery benefits greatly each year throught the help of volunteers. From Memorial Day through Labor Day they assist with such things as greeting visitors, answering questions, guiding tours, lawn maintenance, gardening and cleaning. There are also opportunities to become involved in small construction projects, spawning broodstock, and stocking fish. If you enjoy being outdoors and active, this could be what you're looking for.


Because the hatchery is open daily, our volunteers are asked to rotate work schedules with three or four days ON followed by three or four days OFF. Hours of operation are 8 am to 4 pm. Volunteer shirts, hats, sweaters and jackets are provided during your stay. The non-monetary positions include such benefits as a large, full-hookup RV pad and laundry on the premises. The view looks out across the hatchery fishing pond and the National Elk Refuge, with Jackson Peak and the Sleeping Indian in the background.


Positions are filled as we are contacted by those interested. There are no opening or closing dates for applying. For more information, please contact the hatchery. We look forward to numerous years of working together and making lasting friendships with our volunteers!
