Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge does not host police or court ordered community service hours. We do appreciate all types of service, but our status as an education facility prohibits our organization from hosting police or court ordered community service. For more information click here.
Submission of this interest form does not guarantee a volunteer position. This interest form is intended to gather pertinent details regarding your interest
