Helping with Valley City Wetland Management District's missions and goals can be done through employment and/or volunteering.


The Valley City Wetland Management District is operated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, an agency in the United States (Federal) Government. Jobs occasionally open at the district office, but on an irregular basis. Employment is typically permanent full-time (PFT) or temporary full-time (TFT, also known as seasonal). When jobs open they are filled only through a National online service called USA Jobs. Applicants do not apply directly to the district office for job openings.

A Refuge Volunteer will usually work along-side district employees, often performing the same or similar tasks as paid employees. Volunteers are not paid, except in certain circumstances (some are also reimbursed for travel expenses). These positions are highly respected by district staff, and perform vital functions in the operation of the district. Volunteer positions are always open, and are often geared toward the Volunteer and what he or she wants to contribute. To find out more, please contact the district headquarters.
