Refuge honors volunteers (07/25/2012)
The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife & Fish Refuge – Winona offices held a Volunteer Recognition Event on-board the Living Lands and Waters education barge which was tied at the Winona levee on July 20, 2012. During 2011, over 170 volunteers contributed over 1,600 hours of service representing over $32,000 to the Refuge during the past year.

Volunteer activities included assisting with the Refuge booth at community functions, biological surveys, youth fishing days, river cleanups, photography assignments, and youth educational activities.

The 2011 Volunteer of the Year was Robert “Bob” Drieslein of Houston, Minn. Bob has been a Refuge Volunteer for several years but most recently contributed many hours documenting waterfowl disturbance in an area closed to hunting and assisting with bald eagle nest surveys.

The volunteer program is an excellent way to gain experience, help wildlife, meet interesting people and is open to all ages and abilities. If you would like to enjoy a productive and rewarding experience as a Refuge Volunteer, please call (507) 494-6237.
