Volunteer Workday

Saturday, February 28, 9am-noon, meet near the VIS

A volunteer workday has been scheduled for Saturday, February 28. Volunteers will be helping build bird perches to be used in the Rookery at the Skillern Tract and also doing some landscape work in and around the Butterfly Garden. Lunch will be provided to all volunteers. The Butterfly Garden is one of the first places refuge visitors see and home to native plant species on the refuge, so keeping it clean is important! Click here for more event information and to register.

A second volunteer workday has been scheduled for Saturday, March 28. Another announcement will be sent before the event.
