Be a Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteer!


Volunteers at Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge are an integral part of the staff. They have assisted with numerous projects ranging from conducting wildlife surveys to presenting interpretive programs and light maintenance, and their help has been instrumental in the accomplishment of a number of refuge projects and activities. Our volunteer program seeks to combine the interests of the volunteer with the work needed to be accomplished in order to achieve a productive partnership, one which will ensure the conservation of resources within the refuge.
