Refuge Docent

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

The Refuge Docent is the face of the Refuge in our outdoor spaces. Most of our in-person education and interpretation opportunities are located indoors at the Wilderness Education Center, which is located 12 miles away from our Auto Tour Route. The Refuge Docent will work outdoors and interact with Refuge visitors of all birding abilities and provide them with the opportunity to use scopes, binoculars, and field guides. These materials will be provided, but the Refuge Docent is welcome to use their own equipment (at their own risk). The schedule is ordinarily flexible, but the Refuge Docent may be asked to participate in special events and/or Refuge tours. Typically, the Refuge Docent works a minimum of 10 hours a month. Hours vary seasonally.

About U.S. Fish and 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.
