Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge has an active volunteer program. Volunteers assist with environmental education programs, visitor services, maintenance projects, special events, community outreach, and biological surveys. Volunteers are valuable allies to Bombay Hook refuge, the National Wildlife Refuge System, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Each year, they give generously their time, expertise and resources to Bombay Hook. These individuals and groups are vital to fulfilling the Refuge and Service’s mission and goals.
Volunteer orientation is held the first Saturday of March and September. If you are interested in volunteering contact Tina Watson, Outdoor Recreation Planner: firstname.lastname@example.org or 302-653-6872.
