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 50,000 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 to contribute your strength on behalf of America’s natural resources!

Volunteers Wanted! There are many opportunities to help out at the refuge - habitat projects, wildlife monitoring, education and outreach, office work, and maintenance. No minimum time commitment. Training is provided. Two RV sites with full hook-ups are available for resident volunteers.  If you would like to become a volunteer, please complete the Volunteer Application and return to Erin Railsback, or return to W4279 Headquarters Road, Mayville WI 53050. For additional volunteer opportunities, contact the Friends of Horicon National Wildlife Refuge
