Volunteers at Cora Island Unit Big Muddy NFWR

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 to contribute your strength on behalf of America’s natural resources.

The refuge provides numerous types of volunteer opportunities. Planting trees, picking up trash, building trail and removing invasive plants are some of the large group volunteer activities on the refuge. Individual volunteers are welcome and get involved in numerous types of refuge management activities. Most of the individual volunteers go on a call when needed list.  Call refuge volunteer coordinator Tim Haller at 660-672-2806 for further details and a volunteer application.
