Kofa NWR was established in 1939 for the protection of desert bighorn sheep and other native wildlife. Kofa NWR is the second largest wilderness area in Arizona at 547,719 acres. Kofa is one of three refuges (Kofa, Imperial, and Cibola NWRs) that make up the Southwest Arizona National Wildlife Refuge Complex.
The refuge is looking for a volunteer couple for a variety of opportunities at the refuge office located in the Yuma Foothills. Primary duties include greeting visitors, staffing the Visitor Center, answering phones/directing calls, light housekeeping, and responding to visitor inquiries. Other duties include assisting with general maintenance of facilities/grounds, vehicles, and equipment. Volunteers may have opportunity to assist at Cibola and Imperial National Wildlife Refuges as well.
A valid driver's license is required. Completion of a defensive driving course (training is provided) is required in order to operate government vehicle. A fingerprint background check is required in order to access non-public areas of the refuge.
In return for 24 hours per week per person, we will provide a full hookup RV site at a RV Park near the refuge office. A five month minimum stay is required.
