Protecting, managing, and providing recreational use of New Jersey’s fish and wildlife resources while educating New Jerseyans about the value of these resources cannot be accomplished without the help of volunteers. Wildlife Conservation Corps (WCC) volunteers can directly assist with a wide range of monitoring, research, education, and habitat projects like hunting and fishing education, bald eagle nest monitoring, upkeep of hunter training ranges, trout stocking, and protecting nests on beaches. Other ways to help out include creating backyard habitats, putting up bat houses and bird boxes and reporting wildlife sightings.
