Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is seeking volunteers to help maintain the landscaping around our new visitor center building. The landscaping maintenance volunteers will primarily work during the spring, summer and early fall to pull weeds around the visitor center buildings, pond, and parking lot. Volunteer's efforts will help native plants planted around the visitor center establish themselves and help keep invasive plant species from becoming established on the refuge.
Volunteers will work with the refuge visitor services and maintenance teams, and under the direction of the Landscaping Lead volunteer.

Working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
