Ways to Get Involved
Resident Volunteer Program
Quivira maintains two parking pads for RV use by volunteers. The pads include water, electric, and sewer hook-ups (no gas). Quivira requires a minimum of 20 hours per week per RV (for example, if more than one person lives in the RV, a minimum of one person must contribute 20 hours or more per week). There are also minimum and maximum lengths of stay per pad. This is an excellent opportunity for persons who like to live for several weeks in many areas of the country through the course of the year. Duties for a Resident Volunteer would vary, but would likely involve helping to staff the Visitor Center on weekends.
Quivira National Wildlife Refuge is part of a larger area that is one of the most important shorebird and bird migration stop-over sites in the Central Flyway.
Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area operated by Kansas Wildlife and Parks is north of Quivira and is another Ramsar Wetland of International Importance.
Quivira is also a stop on the Wetlands and Wildlife National Scenic Byway.
