A History of Volunteers

Since 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.

The gift store at Ash Meadows is supported through a partnership with the Death Valley Natural History Association; 100% of the profits and donations go towards programs specifically at Ash Meadows.  When you join the Death Valley Natural History Association you receive membership benefits including 15% off all purchases.  Want more information or wished you had purchased something during a recent visit
