Our volunteers are very important to us. In 2013, 67 volunteers contributed 8,164 hours for an average of 122 hours of work per volunteer. That is 3.9 full time staff members and $138,788 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.
