Volunteers Needed at The Noxubee Refuge Visitor For Sunday Afternoons

The Friends' Board would like to start opening the Refuge's Visitor Center on Sunday afternoons but to do so, they need volunteers to be at the front desk to greet and meet folks that might come in. And of course, they will train you in advance. The main requirement is that you have a love for the refuge and are willing to devote a few hours to help with this endeavor.

Until they know how many folks might volunteer, they don't know specifically how often or how long at the time any volunteer might be utilized. They just need "a show of hands" to get started!

If interested, please call the Visitor Center at (662) 323-5548. Thank You.
