Whether your're interested in volunteering for a day or the entire summer- there are always opportunities to contribute to wildlife conservation at Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge.

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.  This is especially true at Hart Mountain and Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge where the hard work of non-profit conservation organizations and dedicated volunteers which originally helped to establish these two refuges continue today. Every year dozens of volunteers and several organizations visit the refuge to assist maintenance projects, and greeting visitors to the refuge visitor center and campgrounds.
