Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge seeks volunteers


Do you love to talk to people about this beautiful area? Are you looking for ways to learn about nature and make new friends? Do you want to help wildlife? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you have what it takes to become a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteer at the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.

 

Refuge officials are seeking volunteers to assist visitors and staff. Primary duties include greeting visitors and providing information about the refuge’s trails and wildlife. Other opportunities include wildlife surveys, invasive species mitigation, maintenance, trail roving, beach clean-up and administration.

The refuge hosts its annual new volunteer training from 8 a.m.-noon Friday, April 12, (lunch provided noon-1 p.m.) at Sequim Prairie Grange Hall, 290 Macleay Road.

 

The refuge also will host its annual refresher for current volunteers from 1-3 p.m.

 

For more information or to reserve space at the training session, call the refuge office at 457-8451 or send an e-mail to david_falzetti@fws.gov.
