Help with accomplishing the mission of the refuge and research center. Many of these will give Friends and Volunteers a chance to experience events, projects, and activities over and beyond their normal involvement. To take part in some of these, a signed volunteer agreement MUST be on file in with the USFWS volunteer coordinator's office. For others, there is no such requirement. Each opportunity listing will indicate whether a volunteer agreement is required or not. Please check out the opportunities below. You'll be happy you did!

Wildlife Management Opportunities:


To give volunteers some advance notice about opportunities to directly support wildlife management activities on the Refuge, we've created a general annual calendar.

Please make a note of the things you are interested in and watch for more information as the time nears, or for more information, call 301-497-5949.
