Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge

Help improve wildlife habitat by battling noxious weeds and plants at Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge. Weed management work starts in the spring and continues through the fall each year.

Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge encompasses 11,000 acres and we need help battling invasive and noxious weeds at the Refuge. Learn about the dangers of invasive weeds, how to recognize them, and what the best removal methods are. Spend time outside in a beautiful natural setting, work with a team, and increase your knowledge about Deer Flat NWR and the NWR System.

Time Commitment: After training (scheduled at your convenience), you can decide on your own hours. Have the ability to work independently OR the flexibility to coordinate schedule with other volunteers when working as a team.
