The refuge has a limited amount of volunteer opportunities for people to get involved as it is an unstaffed satellite refuge, and very difficult for volunteers to access. The refuge staff hosts an annual volunteer orientation every spring at the complex headquarters in Sudbury, MA where newcomers and long-term volunteers can learn about the details of the upcoming season volunteer opportunities. Please contact Susan_J_Russo@fws.gov. If you want learn more! The refuge occasionally has a variety of internship opportunities each summer from biology work to interpretation and education. Announcements are posted in November each year and the application period closes by the following February.
