Hackmatack was born out of a volunteer movement.  Volunteers and Friends members plan events, lead field trips, remove invasive plants and restore habitats. We cannot manage this refuge without you!

As Hackmatack Refuge grows, there will be more opportunities to volunteer. We look forward to working with individual volunteers and groups to accomplish shared goals. Potential volunteer activities may include education, land restoration, invasive species removal, and other activities.


Hackmatack Refuge has an active "Friends" group that was instrumental in getting the refuge established and continues to work to connect people to our natural resources. Additional information on Friends of Hackmatack can be found by visiting:
