NIHFD volunteer committee


Becoming a volunteer for Northern Illinois Hunting and Fishing Days is a wonderful way to become part of an organization dedicated to promoting outdoor activities and the enjoyment of the great outdoors.  Volunteers can elect the amount of time they can commit to the program.  We need volunteers throughout the year, planning the event, as well as, during the weekend of the event.  If you would like to volunteer on behalf of an organization we can accommodate that too.  We can provide proof of your work time if needed.

Our committee members would appreciate any assistance and you will find our staff both accommodating and enjoyable to work with.  You may contact us through the website “contact us” button at the bottom of any web page.  Individuals, groups and organizations are welcome.  We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for considering to volunteer and help our organization.
