You may have what it takes to become a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteer at the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.

The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is seeking volunteers to assist visitors and staff. Primary duties include greeting visitors and providing information about the refuge’s trails and wildlife.

Additional opportunities include wildlife surveys, invasive species mitigation, habitat restoration, maintenance, beach clean-up and administration.

In addition, the refuge will hold its annual refresher for current volunteers from 1-3:30 p.m.

New volunteer training is offered only once each year and is a requirement for volunteering at the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.

Sequim city councilors agreed in late July to extend a moratorium for six months on manufactured home developments so city staff and the planning commission could better analyze the Sequim Municipal Code’s language on private streets. Discussions about private streets in manufactured home developments came up late last year during the binding site plan application for Lavender Meadows, a 217-site manufactured home park at the intersection of North Sequim Avenue and Port Williams Road. It was approved earlier this year. Sequim Gazette photo by Matthew Nash
