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.

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