Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge is seeking volunteers.

Hallie Rasmussen, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service volunteer coordinator, said volunteers are needed to staff the front desk at the Tule Lake refuge visitor center. Volunteers will greet refuge visitors, provide information and answer questions.

“You’ll learn a lot about the local wildlife refuges,” she said.

Rasmussen said volunteers can help out any time between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and between 9 a.m. and

4 p.m. Saturday.

“Even if it’s just a couple times a month, anything helps,” Rasmussen said.

Experience in customer service is not required, but being enthusiastic about wildlife and the refuge mission is a bonus. Rasmussen called volunteering at the refuge a “great resume builder” and said volunteering is a good way to learn about opportunities with natural resource agencies.

A minimal gas reimbursement is available.

The Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center is located at 4009 Hill Road, Tulelake, Calif., 96134. For more information about this and other volunteer opportunities, contact Hallie Rasmussen at 530-667-2231 or
