Volunteer and Media Release Forms
In order to ensure the safety of volunteers, all participants must complete both the Volunteer Waiver and the Media Release Waiver prior to enrolling in opportunities with the State Department of Land and Natural Resources. Our Media Release Waiver is also used for non-volunteer events where individuals may be featured in outreach photos, videos, or audio produced by the department.
If you are volunteering, you may want to consider this example volunteer checklist for examples of clothing and expectations. Note that this is an example only; the needs of your particular volunteer experience will depend on the location and activity type. Ask the event coordinator for specifics.
1) Volunteer Waiver
Our Volunteer Waiver is used for liability purposes, and is officially titled “Agreement for Individual Voluntary Service.” You can use this form for yourself or for minors for whom you are completing the form. You can download the Volunteer Waiver as a blank PDF or complete the form online using eSign, below.
Note: The form currently directs the signed form to the Information and Education Coordinator within the Forestry and Wildlife (you as the signee also receive a copy). Make sure to forward a copy to the person running your volunteer event.
