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. More than 200 nonprofit Refuge Friends organizations support national wildlife refuges, whether they work with a single refuge, a refuge complex or an entire state. Friends members are crucial to conserving and protecting our nation’s wildlife and teaching millions of Americans that their actions today determine the conservation legacy of tomorrow.
More than 42,000 people volunteer their time and ideas each year to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Whether they work on the land, in a visitor center or with youth, they contribute to the conservation mission that reaches back more than a century. Become a volunteer or Refuge Friend to contribute your strength on behalf of America’s natural resources.
In order to accomplish some of the maintenance and habitat improvement goals at Two Ponds NWR in Arvada, the Refuge staff sets aside the 2nd Tuesday of every month devoted to this endeavor. This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers of all ages to participate in great service projects in order to make their community as well as the neighboring wildlife habitat better. Anyone interested in volunteering their time and skills are always welcome to join us. If interested in more details or information, please call Seth Beres at (303)289-0867. Except when inclement weather prevails, staff and volunteers meet at the main Refuge entrance on 80th Avenue at 8:00am. Hope to see some new faces out there soon!
