Volunteers working on turtle traps


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 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. 

You can be a part of the fulfilling the mission of Grand Bay National Wildlife Refuge by becoming a volunteer! 

Refuge volunteer positions are listed on the volunteers.gov website. You may also contact us for information on upcoming volunteer opportunities. 

Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) also has many volunteer opportunities available for projects at the refuge and the NERR. For more information, check out their volunteer website
