Volunteers provide much needed assistance with wildlife
refuge projects. They are often able to complete work that staff
members cannot fit into their schedules. The hours and work
assignments are tailored to meet the needs of both the wildlife
refuge staff and the volunteer.
Moapa Valley NWR has ongoing volunteer opportunities that include visitor contact and general maintenance of facilities. Visitor contact docents are active during Recreational Vehicle resident hiatuses. For questions, contact the Volunteer Program Coordinator. Applications for these and all ongoing southern Nevada FWS volunteer positions can be accessed on the Internet at https://www.volunteer.gov/gov/ (external link). Enter the search filters of State: Nevada, and Agency: Fish & Wildlife Service.
Moapa Valley NWR has a RV pad and hookup. If RV arrangements are made, 32 hours per week and a three-month minimum commitment are required.
Habitat restoration work occurs in all seasons except the summer.
