Get Involved  -
Support Our Endeavours!


The work done on the Green Bay National Wildlife Refuge is funded in part by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  Many of the projects and programs we have worked on would not be possible without your financial support.  Your donations and inspiration help us to preserve and restore this important part of our community. 

Our gratitude is great!


Our volunteers allow us to do what we do!

Between the US Fish & Wildlife Service and the non-profit Friends of Plum & Pilot Islands, we are looking to build our group of dedicated volunteers.

We have opportunities in administration, hands-on work, and even positions that would get you sailing the open seas, crossing "Death's Door!"


Join us and fall in love with this place too!
