Be a Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteer!
Help us make a difference! Volunteers play a vital role in helping the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service fulfill its mission. They also develop a greater understanding and appreciation of refuges through their hands-on experiences. Working side-by-side with Service employees, volunteers help protect, conserve and restore our nation's fish, wildlife, plants and habitats.
Volunteers at Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge have always been an integral part of the staff. They have assisted with numerous projects ranging from conducting wildlife surveys to presenting interpretive programs, and their help has been instrumental in the accomplishment of a number of refuge projects and activities. Our volunteer program seeks to combine the interests of the volunteer with the work needed to be accomplished in order to achieve a productive partnership, one which will ensure the preservation of resources within the refuge.
Volunteers perform a wide variety of interesting tasks:
- Conducting fish and wildlife population surveys
- Leading tours and providing information and interpretation to the visiting public
- Taking part in special projects, such as bird banding
- Performing clerical and administrative duties
- Photographing a variety of natural and cultural resources
