Calling all Volunteers! Join us for the Public Use Volunteer Workshop and make a difference! 

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteers are just like you. They're teachers, business executives, parents, retirees, name it.  Community involvement played an important role in the establishment of the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge (DRIWR) and helped to save units like Humbug Marsh from destruction by developers; We need your help NOW to continue making a difference because the more volunteers we have, the bigger impact we can all make. Together. 


DRIWR has numerous volunteer opportunities available for people of all ages to work in visitor services, environmental education, biology, habitat restoration, maintenance, office administration, and more. A Volunteer Workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 13th to discuss opportunities for involvement with Refuge Public Use efforts. Assistance is needed in a multitude of Outreach related activities and the following volunteer positions will be the focus of February's workshop: 

  • Office Administration Assistant
  • Visitor Services Assistant
  • Environmental Education Program Leader
  • Media Specialist Assistant
  • Community Outreach Specialist
