USA Persevere and Volunteer Program

As we face COVID-19 together, the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance is here to support and reward your passion for conservation, community service and preserving America’s outdoor heritage through our Work Boots on the Ground Program.

You do not have to be a USA member to participate. In fact, as with all USA projects, union members who volunteer their time receive a FREE SILVER SPONSOR USA MEMBERSHIP ($35 value, includes Union Sportsmen’s Journal magazine subscription, exclusive discounts on gear, trips and more) and other USA Volunteer Incentive Program benefits, including a FREE T-SHIRT.

USA Work Boots on the Ground volunteers are also eligible to earn free gifts!
(Incentives are awarded quarterly and hours reset each year on Dec. 31.)

A few personalized Work Boots on the Ground project ideas include:

  • Go to a local stream, park, or public hunting area and pick up trash.
  • Take your kids or other household members shed hunting and pick up litter you come across.
  • Teach your kids to identify animal tracks and signs.
  • Mentor a new turkey hunter (youth or adult).
  • Contact a local U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service refuge or state park about volunteer opportunities.
  • Build a wood duck box, bird house, or bat house.
  • Build and install a bird feeder for a housebound high-risk neighbor to enjoy.
  • Start your own compost.
  • Begin managing property for wildlife.
  • Plant trees.
  • Assist neighbors in need with repairs, chores, supplies and other needs (while staying safe).
