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. More than 42,000 people volunteer their time and ideas each year to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Whether they work on the land, in a visitor center or with youth, they contribute to the conservation mission that reaches back more than a century.

Trinity River Refuge’s volunteer program is a vital part of daily operations. Volunteers accomplish numerous work projects benefitting many aspects of refuge management, including biological, maintenance, and administrative tasks. Both resident and local volunteers contribute thousands of hours every year to support refuge programs.
