Get Involved

Turtle trapping - USFWS.

Volunteer

Due to a reduction in refuge staff, we are currently not accepting new volunteers at the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. There are a limited number of volunteer opportunities available at the nearby Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge. For more information, please contact Visitor Services Specialist Kelsey Mackey at kelsey_mackey@fws.gov. 

  

Internships

The refuge complex typically has a variety of internship opportunities each year ranging from biology and invasive species work to interpretation and education. Internships are a great way to experience what it is like to work on public lands and make a contribution to natural resource conservation. All internship opportunities will be posted between November-March on one of the following webpages:
