Training session for visitor center volunteers is set for Tuesday, February 20th.

February 3, 2024

Refuge Ranger Becky Larkins will hold a training session for visitor center volunteers on Tuesday morning, February 20th, from 9 AM until noon. This is for new volunteers and a refresher course for current volunteers or for those who have previously volunteered.

The refuge staff seeks more enthusiastic volunteers to join their Visitor Center & Museum Volunteer Team at the US Fish & Wildlife Service's headquarters complex Visitor Center. If you have thought about helping out by being a host, this will be a great way to find out more and meet the people you may be working with if you decide to volunteer.

The training session will take place at the Visitor Center in the Southeast Louisiana Refuges Headquarters Complex, which is located on a beautiful, historic property at 61389 LA-434, Lacombe, LA.

YOUR help is needed. Join the team to help greet visitors and share information about the nine National Wildlife Refuges in Southeast Louisiana.

The Visitor Center & Museum is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 9 AM until 4 PM. Each of these days has two shifts staffed by different volunteers, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Volunteer shifts are from 9 a.m. to 12:30 PM and 12:30 PM to 4 PM You can sign up for as many or as few shifts as you have time available to volunteer.

If you would like to personally make a difference in being sure our Southeast Louisiana national wildlife refuges accomplish all of their varied purposes and everyone in our community is engaged, please consider becoming one of the ambassadors. You can help inform the public about the wonders of wildlife and habitats that are found in the refuges. With just 3 1/2 hours spent, you can have a significant impact by becoming a host/docent at the Visitors Center.

Registration for the class is required. Please RSVP by emailing Becky at, or if you have any questions, you can call her at 985-882-2025.

We will greatly appreciate your help!
