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.

Volunteering at Buffalo Lake National Wildlife Refuge can be an extremely rewarding experience. Services performed by volunteers are invaluable in accomplishing refuge goals, and are important in wildlife conservation.
