Volunteer Orientation

Are you looking for something to do with your free time? Do you enjoy volunteering? Do you like to learn about wildlife and meeting new people? Attend the volunteer orientation on Wednesday, May 8th, 2019 and find out if volunteering at Seney National Wildlife Refuge is a good fit for you and become a part of something fun!

 

Are You Interested in Attending?

The volunteer orientation begins at 9:30 a.m. and runs until 2:30 p.m. at the Visitor Center. Those attending are invited to stay after the orientation for the Seney Natural History Association's annual meeting. Lunch is provided. Current volunteers are encouraged to attend, as well as anyone interested in volunteering at the Refuge.

Our volunteers are involved in many different types of activities on the refuge. Learn more about volunteering at the refuge and read the volunteer position descriptions.

Email or call the Volunteer Coordinator if you want to learn more or register for orientation.

Our volunteers are very important to us. In 2017, 59 volunteers donated 5,396 hours of work to Seney National Wildlife Refuge. That is equivalent to 2.6 full time staff members or $91,732 of labor (calculated at the US Fish & Wildlife Service standard of $17 per hour). Seney National Wildlife Refuge’s volunteers are very dedicated and work as advocates for the Refuge in their daily lives.
