About This Position

St. Catherine Creek NWR is looking for a person to mow the tall grass, weeds, and shrubs. You'll work mostly independently using the refuge riding mowers. There is an RV pad with full hookups (water, electric, sewer) available for free while volunteering a minimum of 20 hours per week, with a minimum term of 6 weeks. Laundry facilities are available as well for volunteers. All residents of the RV must work 20 hours, and we are happy to accommodate couples if we can find an appropriate position for your partner (for example, answering phones and helping at the office or weeding the garden).

Outstanding Service Recognized
For many non-profits, the past two years have been difficult. But for Friends of Northwest Hatcheries (FNH), it was a time for positive growth and change. That’s thanks to President Andy Jaynes, who received an award May 9 from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for outstanding service.

A conservation love story: married Service couple spends weekends volunteering for wildlife
Searching for sea turtle nests is no easy task. Volunteers have to wake up before the sun rises. They walk the beach for miles at a time looking for sea turtle crawls; crawls are marks in the sand made by the turtle’s flippers.

Inspiring a Bright Future for Conservation Stewardship – Happy Earth Day!
There are so many ways that a love of the outdoors can become instilled into our very being, at every age. It’s different for everyone and that’s what makes it our nature. My sense is that this love of nature binds us at the Service – we get it.
