Leavenworth National Hatchery Visitor Services Host

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

The Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery in Leavenworth, Washington has a need for a volunteer/onsite hatchery host to assist with visitor services and light maintenance. The hatchery host will help create a pleasant and educational visitor experience in a well-maintained facility. Nearly 70,000 people visit Leavenworth NFH each year and many come during the summer to learn about the hatchery, hike the nature trail, and enjoy the 170-acre setting. The hatchery is 2 miles from Leavenworth, a popular destination for visitors and in the Icicle Valley, a popular recreation area and gateway to a spectacular wilderness area. Each host will be required to volunteer 20-25 hours per week.

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.
