    Volunteer RV - promo list

    Want to have fun, meet new people, and help wildlife? Become a volunteer with the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge!  Volunteers are actively involved in many Refuge programs.  We also offer RV sites for traveling volunteers willing to work a minimum of 24 hours each week, on a seasonal basis Oct-May and preferring a stay of at least 3 months.  While sharing their camp areas with wildlife like turkeys and black bears, dedicated RV volunteers assist Refuge staff with many duties such as maintenance, events, education and interpretation, habitat treatments, or wildlife inventory.  Because Florida's winter months are so popular among RV’ers, please try to submit applications at least 6 months before your preferred start date.
