Anaho plant collection

Lend a Hand at your Local Wildlife Refuge!

Even on a closed refuge like Anaho Island NWR, there are opportunities to volunteer with some of the research on and off the island.  Conducting native plant and wildlife surveys, compiling data-bases, creating posters and exhibit materials, and assisting with public outreach programs are just a few of the ways you can get involved.

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 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.
