Enjoying the spectacular sights

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


The refuge’s volunteer program is vital with volunteers donating thousands of hours every year. Volunteers help with numerous projects, including biological surveys, visitor center operations, leading nature tours, construction and maintenance projects, and much more. The refuge recruits for volunteer positions through Volunteer.gov.   

For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact the refuge.
