2023 SUMMER/FALL Mower/Chainsaw/Groundskeeper 20 hrs/wk

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

St. Catherine Creek NWR is an awesome 25,000 wildlife refuge filled with birds of all kinds, year-round. We are looking for a person to mow the tall grass, weeds, and shrubs on roadsides, around buildings, kiosks, parking lots, and ATV trails. Removing woody debris from trails, possibly cutting new trail or doing some trail work. You'll work mostly independently using the refuge riding mowers and small ag tractors (if you're trained). There is an RV pad with full hookups (water, electric, sewer) available for free while volunteering a minimum of 20 hours per week, with a minimum term of 6 weeks. Laundry facilities are available as well for volunteers. All residents of the RV must work 20 hours, and we are happy to accommodate couples if we can find an appropriate position for your partner (for example, answering phones and helping at the office or weeding the garden). A potential opportunity for someone (or two) who don't have an RV is to volunteer 24 hrs/wk (minimum six weeks) and live in a house and fix it up while living there, e.g., painting, repairing flooring, plumbing, and cleaning. The house has a laundry room and all appliances included for use during your six-week volunteer term.

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.
