Working for resource conservation and education! Throughout the year, Sewee volunteers work with refuge and forest staff to meet management goals and promote agency missions of conservation, protection, restoration and recreation. With a commitment to conservation, our volunteer support is invaluable.

What are our volunteers doing that enable us to manage and maintain our resources, provide quality services for visitors and, promote conservation education for our youth? Lots!!

Sewee volunteers are engaged in a variety of tasks which include:

  • Providing visitors with information on forest and refuge resources and recreational opportunities
  • Interpreting the cultural and natural history of the forest and refuge
  • Presenting conservation education programs to youth
  • Performing clerical and administrative tasks
  • Providing computer and technological support
  • Assisting with construction and maintenance projects
  • Working with species and habitat management projects
