Dorchester Star - - Regional -

CAM­BRIDGE — Black­wa­ter National Wildlife Refuge cur­rently is seek­ing vol­un­teers to as­sist with a va­ri­ety of pro­grams, in­clud­ing staffing the Vis­i­tor Cen­ter front desk, main­tain­ing the ben­e­fi­cial in­sect and but­ter­fly gar­den, lead­ing in­ter­pre­tive and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams and bi­o­log­i­cal mon­i­tor­ing.

Vol­un­teers help the refuge ful­fill its mis­sion. More than 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.

A vol­un­teer work­shop will be held at the Black­wa­ter NWR Vis­i­tor Cen­ter from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Satur­day, Aug. 6, to up­date new and sea­soned vol­un­teers on cur­rent projects.

Vol­un­teers also will have the op­por­tu­nity to meet Black­wa­ter NWR’s new refuge man­ager, Mar­cia Pradines. The train­ing ses­sion is open to cur­rent vol­un­teers and any­one in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a vol­un­teer.
