Volunteer at Visitor Center

Without volunteer help the Visitor Center at Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge can't be open on Saturdays! We are also looking for hosts to help during the week. Greet refuge visitors and answer their questions about refuge wildlife and recreational activities. Also track visitation, operate videos upon request, and help with other special projects. Saturday volunteer must be willing to go through a background check.

Schedule is flexible, and we need more people on the roster to make schedules work.

Time Commitment: We start a new schedule quarterly throughout the year. Volunteers can either work one Saturday a quarter, one Saturday a month, or more. Weekend volunteers are now required to get a background check, and will need to commit to volunteering with the refuge for a year.

We are also currently seeking weekday volunteers (schedule is flexible). Weekday volunteers do not need to get a background check. As training can take up to 2 hours for this position, we ask our weekday hosts to commit to a longer term of volunteering as well.

How to Apply: Please email deerflat@fws.gov or simply use the link to apply.
