The Long Island NWR Complex needs volunteers to staff a variety of education booths and children's craft activities; lead canoe and birding tours; direct parking; and other tasks as they arise. Many volunteers are needed in every aspect of these events, including parking, children's activities, bird hikes and ensuring the public has a great experience at each event. Staff and existing volunteers will train new volunteers on the refuge complex and how to run specific booths and/or activities. In most cases, volunteers will be working with staff members or experienced volunteers.

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.
