Be a tour guide, work in the visitor center, help with trail maintenance and refuge projects. Volunteers even help with the longhorn and bison sales!

Come out and volunteer and be part of the refuge.

  • We have a small team of volunteers who have been detailing the vans and tour bus. They are meeting on Fridays @ 9:00 am at the Visitor Center for about an hour each week.
  • The volunteer maintenance crew meets @ 8:00 am at various locations on Wednesdays to mow and trim the picnic areas.
  • There are always volunteer projects on the weekends either Saturday &/or Sunday. Typical projects are graffiti removal, trail maintenance and removing invasive plants.
  • There is a need for Visitor Center volunteers and for interpretive tour volunteers – drivers, leaders and assists.
  • The Nature Store can also use volunteers on Saturdays, Sundays and all holidays.
