FOMF Volunteers

The Friends of Multnomah Falls is a non-profit volunteer organization. Over 4 million visitors visit Multnomah Falls every year. In 1994, the Forest Service opened the Multnomah Falls Visitor Center. Visitors to Multnomah Falls want information about the history and natural history of the Falls, the trails near the Falls and other sites they might visit while they are in Oregon and Washington. FOMF trains our volunteers to answer these questions and how to help the Forest Service with other visitor services at Multnomah Falls. After 16 hours of volunteer service each year you earn a NW Forest Pass from the USFS.

You do not need to be a member of FOMF to volunteer in the Visitor Center, but membership is encouraged. New volunteers are subject to a criminal background check.
