Volunteer Hatchery Host Program


Our volunteers are individuals who want to give back to their communities, parents who want to be good stewards of the land and set examples for their children, retired people willing to share their wealth of knowledge, concerned citizens of all ages who want to learn more about conservation, and passionate people who enjoy the outdoors and want to spread the word about America's greatest natural treasures.

Imagine helping raise fish at a national fish hatchery. Our volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks at Kooskia National Fish Hatchery. Seasonal volunteers assist with fish culture, grounds and building maintenance, and public contact duties. Trailer sites and hook-ups are available for 2 units on the hatchery grounds.  The hatchery host season runs from April through September.  For more information and an application, please contact Manager, Kooskia National Fish Hatchery, Route 1, Box 98A, Kooskia, Idaho 83539.  We can also be reached by calling (208) 926-4272. Couples are encouraged to apply.

Take Pride in America The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service encourages volunteerism and supports the Take Pride in America program, which recognizes outstanding volunteers.
