There are currently no volunteer opportunities available at the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge. However, once the refuge opens to the public volunteer opportunities are expected to become available. Until then, if you’re interested in volunteering at a national wildlife refuge there are opportunities at the nearby Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge complex.
Volunteers and friends of national wildlife refuges are an important resource for preserving today’s wildlife for future generations. Public engagement in preserving natural resources was the basis of the national wildlife refuge system founding in 1903. Today more than 42,000 volunteers each year work on refuge land, in visitor centers or with special groups.
There are more than 200 “Friends of” refuge support organizations across the United States that assist a single refuge, a group of refuges, or refugues across their entire state. As the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge nears its public opening, it will be important for those wishing to preserve and protect public access to the refuge to organize their own “Friends of the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge” group.
