Bird watching on the refuge / USFWS

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.

If you have some spare time or would like to work with wildlife, consider becoming a volunteer at the Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge. Volunteers help staff conduct wildlife surveys, take photographs, lead tours, help staff the Washita Farm Heritage Center, maintain refuge facilities, compile plant and animal species lists, design and construct exhibits and more.

The refuge is looking for committed volunteers who can serve a minimum of four hours per week. Staff will provide the necessary training and equipment.

Please contact the refuge if you are interested in volunteering for Tishomingo National Wildlife Refuge.
