Education RV Volunteer Opportunity

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is seeking individuals with a passion to educate and engage with others. Candidates may be asked to assist, and sometimes lead, educational programming on and off-site. As such, individuals and couples must be comfortable with public speaking in front of groups of students and the public. Candidates must be willing to occasionally travel locally, using Refuge vehicles, in order to assist with community events around the greater Titusville area. Assisting with Refuge maintenance is also required, including custodial maintenance and Refuge trash-pickup. Concrete RV pads with full hookups, 30/50 AMP electricity, and shared laundry facilities are provided in exchange for working 24 hours/week per person. Due to the nature of the Refuge, no pets are allowed unless kept within the RV. Bottled water is provided due to tap water being unsafe for consumption, although not harmful for RV water lines. This urban refuge sits just 6 miles from downtown Titusville where local shops, restaurants, and entertainment can be enjoyed.

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.
