Savannah NWR Information desk

The Savannah NWR Visitor Center information desk is the public's' point of contact with the Refuges, and usually handles between 60 and 120 visitors per day.  Volunteers greet visitors, answer questions, and distribute refuge maps and other info.  There is always backup from a Refuge Ranger if needed.  Volunteers at the desk also handle sales at The Gator Hole, our book and nature store adjacent to the information desk.  Last year the Gator Hole generated more than $42,000 in sales, and the net proceeds all flow to the Friends to support our activities on the Refuges.

This is a great opportunity to interact with Refuge visitors who come from all over the world to share in the natural wonder at our doorstep.

Training is provided and your hours at the desk are tracked for recognition at our annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner. The Visitor Center is open 9AM - 4PM Monday thru Saturday with two volunteers scheduled each day for 3 1/2 hour shifts. Our Point-of-Sale system is very easy to use and reduces training time.
