About This Position

The Summer Visitor Services RV Volunteer Position is for an individual or couple who will work with Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge’s Visitor Services team during summer activities, field trips, and offsite outreach events. The volunteer(s) will also cover the Visitor Desk when it is not covered by other volunteers.


Ideally, the volunteer(s) will be available to serve during April – August. Preference will be given to volunteers who can commit to all or most of the summer season.


RV Volunteers are live-in volunteers who spend a minimum of 2-3 months volunteering at the Refuge. Individuals or couples who serve as RV volunteers must work an individual, or combined, 20 hours a week. In return, RV volunteers receive access to the RV pad behind the Refuge’s federal bunkhouse. The pad has hookups for water, power, Wi-Fi, and sewage. The bunkhouse has free access to laundry machines.
