Get Involved

Zebratail_512x219From its start in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge System has owed its very existence to concerned citizens eager to protect America's natural resources.

There are many volunteer opportunities at the refuge, including:

  • Maintenance work -- carpentry, plumbing, "handyperson" skills, welding, and more. 
  • Biological support for qualified volunteers. 
  • Photographers able to capture images of wildlife, habitat and visitors enjoying the refuge and staff at work.  
  • Administrative support, including answering phones and clerical work.  
  • Artists of all kinds, including painters, carvers and those who enjoy doing crafts. 
  • Educators to help with field trips, develop educational programs and more. 

Three gravel trailer pads are available for volunteers interested in living on the refuge. For 32 hours per week, volunteers get a trailer pad with water, electric and sewer. A minimum of one month is required.

If you would like to be part of this important effort, please contact the refuge
