Get Involved at Muscatatuck


Volunteers assist with many activities at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge in the biological, maintenance and visitor services area. Working hours are flexible and, for long-term, full-time volunteers, housing and/or trailer sites may be available.

The refuge hosts Youth Conservation Corps workers in the summer. Download the application form.  

Muscatatuck has an active "Friends" non-profit support group. The Muscatatuck Wildlife Society assists refuge staff in many ways including funding management and visitor service projects, maintaining the historic Myers Cabin and barn, supporting special events, managing the Visitor Center Nature Store, and printing "Duck Tales", a refuge newsletter. Many friends' members also volunteer at the refuge doing educational, interpretive, biological, and maintenance projects. For more information, or for a Muscatatuck Wildlife Society membership brochure, call or e-mail the refuge.   More information about the Friends can be found on their Muscatatuck Wildlife Society MWS Facebook Page or their MWS website
