Volunteers on the refuge - Friends of Supawna Meadows.


Supawna Meadows National Wildlife Refuge welcomes volunteers. Loss of habitat to human uses is the world's biggest cause of species endangerment and extinction. Because we continue to establish towns, cities and recreation sites in areas that were once natural habitats, wildlife needs our help more than ever to survive. Individuals interested in volunteering are welcome to contact refuge headquarters at (609) 463-0994 any weekday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm. Volunteer opportunities are available within the Biology, Visitor Services, and Maintenance programs. Time commitments can range from a few hours on a single day to a set schedule over many months, but all volunteers must sign a Volunteer Services Agreement. Popular volunteer opportunities include: bat surveys, trail repair and maintenance.

Friends of Supawna Meadows NWR operate a Nature Store out of the Visitor Contact Station and staff the Finns Point Rear Range Light periodically throughout the year. Volunteer opportunities are available at these locations and throughout the refuge with projects/events such as roadside clean-ups and an annual Youth Fishing Event.
