Kay Lynn Odle-Moore - Volunteer Coordinator
As the Volunteer Coordinator for Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge (one of only two Alaskan National Wildlife Refuges on the road system; the other 14 in Alaska are fly-ins), it is my pleasure to work with residential volunteers. They help us to meet our mission - working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
We seek energetic volunteers who are traveling with their RVs and are willing to commit to an eight week stay on our sites. We seek a couple for our Deadman Lake Campground RV Hosts, another couple for our Visitor Center RV Hosts, and a single volunteer for our Maintenance position. All three positions are detailed in Help Wanted postings.
We ask that our RV Hosts work a total of 32 hours a week (4 eight-hour days), and that our Maintenance Volunteer works a 40 hour week (5 eight-hour days).
Our volunteers often enjoy canoeing, fishing, or hiking on our refuge during their free time. They also enjoy getting a chance to socialize with Tetlin's friendly staff and other volunteers.
If you're interested in becoming one of our volunteers, I'd encourage you to provide detailed information about your previous experience. Recent references are required as well.
These volunteer positions are quite competitive, and often fill up nearly a year in advance.
