Summer Work Camper Position at Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Complex

Volunteers must be able to handle the hot, humid Florida weather. Volunteers will have the opportunity to be on kayaks or the boardwalk at Three Sisters Springs. They will also be assisting with day-to-day Refuge maintenance and staffing the Visitor Center. We rely heavily on volunteers in order to protect and maintain the habitats here in Crystal River, Florida.

 

Established in 1983, Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge is the only refuge created specifically for the protection of the threatened Florida Manatee, a subspecies of the West Indian Manatee. This unique refuge preserves the last unspoiled and undeveloped spring habitat in Kings Bay, which forms the headwaters of the Crystal River.
