No experience is necessary. Experienced volunteers and refuge staff will be on hand to help train new volunteers. Most work days run from 9am-noon with FOAR providing lunch to all attendees.

Helping At Nature Stores

Do you like to meet and talk to new people?  Do you want to be the face of the refuge?  If you answered yes, then working in one of our Nature Stores is for you.  FOAR operates two stores with the help of local volunteers.  We need you to help keep the stores open and greet visitors to the area and to the refuge.  All training will be provided!

Education Programs

Are you available on weekdays during the school year? Every year, FOAR makes trips to local schools and host field trips on the refuge for local youth.  Volunteers are needed to help work with students and assist refuge staff with student projects.
