USGS offices are located in every state. Please note,...
Volunteers assist on some USGS projects. In all cases, the volunteers are carefully trained. Then they are supervised by a federal employee while they work. In addition, to ensure quality-control, their data are checked by USGS supervisors. Volunteers must abide by the same rules, regulations, policies, and laws as employees.
