Hang out with the cottontails and the quail while you help maintain wildlife-friendly landscaping at the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge. We have a drought-tolerant garden, a pollinator garden, and other wildlife-friendly landscaping around the Refuge Visitor Center. Weeds grow, shrubs get bigger, plants die, etc. So we are always looking for volunteers to help weed, prune, etc.

No experience needed; we provide training.

Mission Statement

The mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System is to work with others, to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.


Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge, founded by President Theodore Roosevelt on February 25, 1909, is one of the oldest refuges in the National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS).

Managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the System preserves a network of lands and waters set aside for the conservation and management of the nation's fish, wildlife, and plant resources for the benefit of present and future generations.

Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge needs your talents, enthusiasm, and time! If you appreciate and are concerned about the refuge and its wildlife, then consider becoming a refuge volunteer.


We'll work with your schedule.
