Volunteer Opportunities

Read this interesting article on the effects of volunteers at the Refuge and consider volunteering!  

 Volunteers are essential to the mission of Friends of Noxubee Refuge and the Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge.  As federal budgets shrink, support groups become more important in helping to protect our natural treasures for the benefit of present and future generations. Members of Friends of Noxubee  are involved, at varying degrees, in a variety of activities consistent with the protection and preservation of the environment.
