Swan Check Station Operator

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

The Swan Check Park Ranger is a volunteer dedicated to helping the Refuge run Swan Checks for the state of Utah during the swan hunt season, typically October-mid-December. Hunters must check swans within 3 days of harvesting. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources uses the information to track hunting success and the number of harvested Trumpeter swans. The Utah swan season ends when the federal quota of Trumpeter swans has been harvested. The Swan Check Park Ranger will be trained by Refuge staff to identify Trumpeter vs. Tundra swans. Checks will likely occur on Fridays and Saturdays for 8-10 hours/day, shorter shifts may be available dependent on volunteer recruitment. RV pad access is available for this position if volunteering a minimum 20 hours/week. The pad has hookups for water, power, Wi-Fi, and sewage, as well as free access to laundry machines.

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.
