Volunteers needed at wildlife refuge
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.
