The fall is a great time to be outside (probably not today though). And…it’s always a great time to volunteer. That’s why we asked Lynne Staub, our volunteer coordinator for the Division of Fish and Wildlife to tell us more about the incredible variety of volunteer opportunities they offer.
Have you ever listened to frogs calling on a warm summer night, or gotten so close to Delaware’s shorebirds you could almost count their feathers? Have you ever had an opportunity to help restore wildlife habitat with a simple pair of loppers? Volunteer with DNREC’s Division of Fish and Wildlife and you’ll soon find yourself in the middle of exciting activities such as these and much more!
The Division is committed to the conservation and restoration of wildlife species and habitats, and to providing safe and enjoyable fishing, hunting and boating opportunities. Volunteers play a key role by monitoring wildlife species, restoring native habitats and helping teach environmental education programs.
So if you want to come over to the WILD side of volunteering, DNREC offers plenty of programs to unleash your inner-environmentalist.
Just next month, the Division of Fish and Wildlife is looking for volunteers to help with three projects in state wildlife areas:
The Division of Fish & Wildlife’s volunteer activities range far and wide, covering fish and fowl and plenty in between.

Do something wild and lively this fall,
and get outside with Fish & Wildlife!
