The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge needs you -- your talents, your enthusiasm and some of your time! We depend on our volunteers to keep the refuge running, helping with everything to daily visitor center operations to habitat restoration to festivals.

Anyone may apply to our volunteer program, but minors under 18 need written permission from a parent or guardian. To join our team, you can:
