Get Involved!

volunteer kids


There are a number of volunteer opportunities available throughout the year with the KBIC Natural Resources Department. How would you like to be involved? 

Some opportunities include greenhouse planting and transplanting, trail creation and maintenance, fish tagging, wildlife camera checks, invasive plant control, and KBIC sponsored events such as the Kid's Fishing Derby, Tribal Water Day, and Lake Superior Day beach clean-up.

Opportunities are seasonal and advance inquiries are appreciated. Your volunteering contributes to the success of these programs! It is also an opportunity to learn more about specific work in various fields and is a great way to build your resume.
