    This is an excellent opportunity to have the best of two worlds: First, the beautiful surroundings of the refuge with its bountiful wildlife and plant habitats, and Second, the ability to interact with visitors and local communities. Your duties will include running the Visitor Center on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Duties include greeting visitors, answering questions about the refuge, operating a small museum and keeping count of total number of visitors. You will also be responsible for general janitorial & cleaning services (i.e. vacuuming the carpet, sweeping off the main sidewalk entrance, cleaning and re-supplying the restrooms) of the Visitor Center’s offices and restrooms on those days. On occasions you will assist with special social events held on the refuge. Other potential work opportunities are available for those who have talents in the following areas: carpentry, mechanical/electrical maintenance, lawn maintenance, & assisting with wildlife surveys.

    Interested parties should contact Steve Whitson or John Benson at the address below:
