Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge Seeks Volunteers

Saturday, August 12, 2017

9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.: Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, 2145 Key Wallace Drive, Cambridge, MD; 410-228-2677, , 

Do you enjoy meeting people from all over the world? Are you passionate about wildlife and wild places? Do you want to give back to your community and help others enjoy the natural resources that our area has to offer? If so, consider volunteering at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) today! Volunteers are needed to assist with a variety of programs, including staffing the information desk in the Visitor Center, leading interpretive and educational programs, maintaining the Beneficial Insect and Butterfly Garden, boundary posting, trail maintenance, and much more.

A volunteer workshop will be held at the Blackwater NWR Visitor Center on Saturday, August 12th from 9:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. to update new and seasoned volunteers on current refuge projects. Come learn what has been happening on the refuge, with updates from refuge staff on the hunt program, biological and maintenance programs, and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park. This training session is open to current volunteers as well as any member of the public interested in becoming a refuge volunteer.
Volunteers play a critical role in helping the refuge fulfill its mission. Over 180,000 visitors from all over the world visit Blackwater NWR each year to photograph wildlife, hike trails, paddle waterways, and enjoy the scenic landscapes. Established in 1933 as a refuge for migratory birds, the refuge has one of the highest concentrations of nesting bald eagles on the Atlantic coast, and the largest protected population of Delmarva Peninsula fox squirrels. With over 29,000 acres of rich tidal marsh, mixed hardwood and pine forest, managed freshwater wetlands and several hundred acres of cropland, Blackwater NWR supports a diversity of wildlife.

To learn more about the volunteer program at Blackwater NWR or to register for this volunteer workshop, please contact Michele Whitbeck at 410-221-8157 or
