You might consider being a volunteer at one of the Iditarod check points. See Volunteers

The Department of Natural Resources is also looking for a winter park caretaker in Sitka. See Alaska State Parks Volunteer Program Volunteer and Volunteer Internship Positions Winter Park Caretaker

The Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge and the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve are looking for winter volunteers. See Volunteering for Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge in Homer, Alaska | Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor Center

Thank you both, Chilkoot and Glitch. This is just the kind of informaition that I have been looking for.

As for the dog sledding, I have volunteered for the Yukon Quest, massaging the dogs and mushers, plus trail development. Bin there done that.

As for the volunteer possitions with the state department, sounds just great, I just hope they are willing to take on a Canadian.

The most interesting is the Alaska wildlife center, the only thing is I am not willing to pay $800 to work my ass off. I work hard and will be an asset. I wonder if a letter from the wildlife rehab that I'am currently volunteering at would help.

Thank you again, I now have some options.
