Resident Maintenance Volunteer (RV)

Save to Favorites

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Stretching inland from the Gulf Coast beaches and marshes into the bottomland forests of the Brazos and San Bernard River watersheds, the San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge provides vital habitat for resident wildlife, wintering waterfowl, and other migratory birds, to include neotropical migrants. This approximately 69,000 acre refuge contains some of the last remnants of old growth Columbia Bottomland forests in coastal Texas.

The refuge seeks general maintenance volunteers who will assist refuge staff with trail maintenance, mowing, and upkeep of facilities and equipment, as well as other projects. Volunteers play an important role in refuge maintenance and public use programs. Volunteers directly affect the quality and success of refuge operations; visitors’ safety, comfort, and enjoyment; and the public’s understanding and image of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

Mission Statement

Working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.

Description

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the premier government agency dedicated to the conservation, protection, and enhancement of fish, wildlife and plants, and their habitats. We are the only agency in the federal government whose primary responsibility is the conservation and management of these important natural resources for the American public.


The agency includes both the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System.

The Service's origins date back to 1871 when Congress established the U.S. Fish Commission to study the decrease in the nation’s food fishes and recommend ways to reverse that decline. (More on our history below.) Today, we are a diverse and largely decentralized organization, employing about 8,000 dedicated professionals working out of facilities across the country.
