Become a Refuge Volunteer!


Mattamuskeet Refuge is seeking enthusiastic, friendly volunteers to work in the refuge's Visitor Contact Station and assist with general grounds and facilities maintenance during the work week and on weekends throughout the year. Thousands of people visit the refuge every year, especially on weekends to view the wildlife, and to fish and crab. 

Resident Volunteers (RVs) live in their own recreational vehicle on pads provided by the refuge. Water, electric, sewage hook-up and laundry facilities are provided in exchange for volunteer service.  A couple must commit to 24 hours of service per week. A single person must commit to 32 hours of service per week. 

Mattamuskeet Refuge uses interns several seasons of the year for assorted refuge work.  For more information and directions on how to apply, visit the Alligator River Internships page.  Be sure to scroll down the page to find the Mattamuskeet internship information!

If you have a talent or skill, and some time and energy to spare, come by the office or call us.
