Get Involved

Boy Scout Group Volunteering on Refuge


Volunteering is just one excellent and important way that you can get involved with a local National Wildlife Refuge like Bear River MBR. There are other ways to be involved with conservation and activities on Refuges as well, such as becoming a Friends member or purchasing the Federal Duck Stamp.

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.
