Nothing in nature is static. With Spring here, plants are in the growing season. Our mission is to seek and remove invasive plant species. This often involves digging, hiking through mud, picking, pulling, lopping, stooping, etc.
Perks of joining us for our events are:
* Getting to explore areas of the refuge not usually accessible to visitors
* Learning more about the local wildlife and environment.
* Snacks, hot drinks, good company, and outstanding scenery.
* Satisfaction knowing that you are making a difference in the lives of an endangered species for years to come.
Special days may also be arranged for groups. Rain or shine. Dress for the weather including waterproof boots. No Experience Necessary. Registration is encouraged but not required. All volunteers must complete a Visitor Service Agreement prior to volunteering which can be found here http://1.usa.gov/1NzriIg.
The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1965 to provide wintering habitat for the dusky subspecies of the Canada goose. Today, the refuge is a place where people can share a bond with nature, and each other, by passing on outdoor traditions to new generations. As the population of the region increases, the refuge will become even more important to wildlife and those seeking to connect with nature.
