Volunteers give their time and efforts to assist National Wildlife Refuges all across the nation. If you wish to volunteer with the Huron Wetland Management District, please feel free to contact our office. There are some opportunities to assist with habitat management projects and spend some time outdoors.


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 200 nonprofit Refuge Friends organizations support national wildlife refuges, whether they work with a single refuge, a refuge complex or an entire state.  Friends members are crucial to conserving and protecting our nation’s wildlife and teaching millions of Americans that their actions today determine the conservation legacy of tomorrow.  

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. 


The Huron Wetland management District's Friends Group is Friends of Maga Ta-Hohpi WPA. The Friends Group is a private non-profit organization that helps promote, develop and support environmental education and awareness of the values of preserving and enhancing our natural resources.
