If being a refuge volunteer is not the opportunity you were looking for, maybe supporting a non-profit organization will fit your needs. The Friends of the Potomac River Refuges was founded in 2002 as a non-profit 501(c)3 organization to promote conservation, awareness, and appreciation of the wildlife and habitats of the Potomac River National Wildlife Refuge Complex and to provide assistance to refuge programs.
