Conserving America's Fisheries

Volunteers help us succeed


Our volunteers are individuals who want to give back to their communities: parents who want to be good stewards of the land and set examples for their children, retired people willing to share their wealth of knowledge, concerned citizens of all ages who want to learn more about conservation, and passionate people who enjoy the outdoors and want to spread the word about America's greatest natural treasures. Please call or email this field station to learn about future volunteer opportunities.

Volunteers are always welcome at the Ludington Biological Station. If interested in volunteering, please contact Jenna Tews at 231-843-7310 or email at:

Partner Information

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. In turn, the Fisheries Program routinely collaborates with tribal, federal, state, local and non-profit groups to implement on-the-ground conservation projects that protect and enhance fish and other aquatic resources.
