Volunteers provide their skills and energy to the oak savanna restoration effort, clean-up projects, school programs, visitor center information desks, maintenance of public facilities, trail construction, office work and wildlife monitoring. We invite you to learn from first hand experiences. By volunteering you'll gain knowledge about the refuge, its purpose, and become involved in the stewardship of wildlife, natural landscapes, and quality of life for people in the Twin Cities. Occasionally the refuge has a specific volunteer opportunity to be filled and we list a job description at the federal agency volunteer site: www.volunteer.gov. You may search for Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge using the zip code 55425.For more information on how to get involved, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
