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 a conservation mission that reaches back more than a century. Volunteering at a National Wildlife Refuge is a win-win situation. It provides the volunteer a sense of pride and accomplishment; while mutually benefiting refuge staff, local community, and ultimately wildlife.
Maxwell National Wildlife Refuge volunteers are chosen based on current refuge needs and the skills and interests of the prospective volunteer.

Nature does not recognize human-made boundaries. In order to conserve our natural and cultural resources effectively, we must work with others to bridge these boundaries. Partnerships foster creative solutions to challenging situations and often the results are greater than the sum of the parts.
