Janice Bengtson, the Tamarac NWR volunteer coordinator, asked me to post this opening on the Escapees Forum. I have volunteered here twice and rank the experience as in my top two Fish and Wildlife experiences. Please give Janice a call if you're available for further details, or sent me a PM if you have other questions about my experiences there.
