Volunteers are responsible for informing visitors about Monomoy, directing them to our self-guided walk, and answering any questions they may have about the refuge, displays in the center, or Chatham in general. Volunteers also make sales in the friends of Monomoy bookstore and answer any phone calls for the center. Our typical volunteer involvement includes either a 10:00am-2:00pm or 2:00pm-6:00pm shift at the visitor center. Volunteers can come in as often as they’d like, the more the better! In order to become a volunteer, please contact Matthew Hillman at




The refuge typically has a variety of internship opportunities each summer ranging from biology and invasive species work to interpretation and education. Announcements are posted in November each year and the application period usually closes by the following February. Internships are a great way to experience what it is like to work on public lands and make a contribution to natural resource conservation.
