Wildlife Refuge at the Coast 

Come join us as we care for and explore a 66,306-acre wildlife refuge.  This coastal park encompasses a few of our crucial barrier islands.  Our program provides the opportunity for volunteers to understand the impact that barrier islands hold towards our natural environment.  While learning, which creatures call our coastal ecosystem home.  This coastal wildlife refuge will have volunteers practicing coastal conservation, while becoming educated on our wildlife refuge.
