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. 

  • Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuge


    More than 200 non-profit Refuge Friends organizations support national wildlife refuges. 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. 

    Friends volunteers for Kanuti Refuge have assisted in various projects such as maintenance projects, outreach events, and biological studies. Whether working on the land, in a visitor center, or with youth, volunteers contribute to a conservation mission that reaches back more than a century. To learn more about volunteer opportunities visit Friends of Alaska National Wildlife Refuge to connect with Alaska's Friends group.
