ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

We need volunteers to assist refuge staff in leading environmental education programs for local school groups. Programs are currently being developed and will meet New York state standards and curriculum. New volunteers will accompany staff members on programs until they feel comfortable leading. Once both the volunteer and staff member feel comfortable the volunteer may provide programs alone. This position will provide you with an opportunity to instill a sense of natural resource stewardship in local students.


A federal government background check is required for volunteers working with children. (Retired teachers would still need to meet this requirement.) This expense will limit the number of volunteers we can use in this capacity to those who can make a long term commitment.


Times/Days: Monday - Friday, during the school year. 45 minutes to 4 hours plus travel weekdays during scheduled summer camps.

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.
