Dig In to Help a National Wildlife Refuge.

Although Fallon NWR is remote with limited access, there are always projects that can use a helping hand within the Stillwater NWR Complex. There are opportunities for volunteers, service groups and student interns to take an active role in the management of a local National Wildlife Refuge.  Read below for more details.

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 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. While Fallon NWR and the Stillwater NWR Complex no longer have an active Friends group, there is a local group called Friends of Stillwater, a NV nonprofit charitable organization, that provides a variety of outdoor education activities for area agencies, groups, schools and the public.

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. Learn more from the Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteer website, choose the location you're interested in for a list of available opportunities.

Become a Refuge Volunteer and help conserve important wildlife and their habitats for future generations.  For more information on volunteering, contact the Visitor Services Manager at 775/423-5128 ext. 228.
