Volunteers and student interns provide much needed assistance with wildlife refuge projects. They are often able to complete work that staff members cannot fit into their schedules. The hours and work assignments are tailored to meet the needs of both the wildlife refuge staff and the volunteer or intern.
Desert NWR has ongoing volunteer opportunities that include
office-based clerical assistance and general maintenance of
facilities and equipment. For questions, contact the Volunteer
Program Coordinator. Applications for these and all ongoing
southern Nevada FWS volunteer positions can be accessed on the
Internet at https://www.volunteer.gov/gov/ (external
link). Enter the search filters of State: Nevada, and Agency:
Fish & Wildlife Service.
Desert NWR does not have a Recreational Vehicle pad or hookup
at this time. Due to construction activity at the wildlife refuge,
volunteers are not able to live on site.
Habitat restoration work occurs in all seasons except the summer.

The Friends of the Desert National Wildlife Refuge Complex are a collection of conservationists also involved in volunteerism at all the wildlife refuges within the complex. For more information about the Friends group, email: email@example.com
Other volunteer positions will be considered on an individual basis.
We need you!
