Volunteers Needed for Wildlife Workday

The Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge and the S.C. Wildlife Federation will host a workday for staff, friends and volunteers at the National Wildlife Refuge from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, December 9. Those interested in volunteering to help are encouraged to call in advance to reserve a space. The workday is an annual project of the Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge featuring work activities, such as raking around red-cockaded woodpecker trees to exclude them from prescribed burns, trail maintenance, installing trail signs, and building information kiosks. Those joining the team can look forward to a day of learning about refuge wildlife while helping conserve and protect valuable natural resources.

Participants should plan to wear field clothes and comfortable shoes, and bring work gloves, drinks and a snack. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the headquarters office, located 3.5 miles east of McBee, South Carolina, on U.S. Highway 1, in Chesterfield County. Participants are welcome and encouraged to picnic at Lake Bee before leaving the refuge. Anyone planning to bring a group should call in advance to give notice.

Location: Carolina Sandhills National Wildlife Refuge, 23734 N. U.S. 1, McBee, SC. To volunteer, email Sara Green at or call the S.C. Wildlife Federation office at 803-256-0670. Also visit
