Volunteer Bus TourMay 9th, 2013
Have you ever wondered what is behind the refuge gates? Do you have questions about the refuge? The Volunteer Bus Tour is a continuation of the Volunteer Orientation on May 8th. Staff take current and potential volunteers on a tour behind the locked refuge gates to answer questions and share their knowledge about the refuge.
This tour will take volunteers on the backcountry roads throughout the refuge as a way of sharing the different habitat types, management practices and answers the participants questions.
Our volunteers are involved in many different types of activities on the refuge. Learn more about volunteering at the refuge and read the volunteer position descriptions.

Our volunteers are very important to us. In 2012, 69 volunteers contributed 8,666 hours for an average of 126 hours of work per volunteer. That is 4.2 full time staff members and $147,322 of labor (calculated at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service standard of $17 per hour). Seney National Wildlife Refuge’s volunteers are very dedicated and work as advocates for the refuge in their daily lives.
