Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is the largest of the last remaining intact wetlands of the historic floodplains of the Rio Grande. A small group of staff work hard to re-create the processes of the river and provide food and rest for thousands of overwintering birds in what is now a world-famous nature tourism destination. RV volunteers are critical to supporting staff at this busy station.
Bosque del Apache strives to maintain a Queer/LGBTQA+ and BIPOC- friendly space and work environment. Working and living at this station requires the ability to work with, take direction from, and live near people of all ages, backgrounds, and personality types. Positive outlooks and flexibility are key to success at this large and active station. We welcome RV volunteers of all backgrounds to apply!
