Sam D. Hamilton Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge consists of approximately 48,000 acres of bottom land hardwoods and upland mixed forests.  The primary purpose is to provide sanctuary and breeding habitat for waterfowl, migratory birds, and other wildlife.  Several protected species including the American alligator, bald eagle, and red cockaded woodpecker make the refuge  home.

Each year volunteers donate thousands of hours  to the refuge. These volunteers come from Friends of Noxubee Refuge, Volunteer Starkville, and Maroon Volunteers. In order to achieve maximum output from the volunteers, a volunteer coordinator is needed.  Friends of Noxubee Refuge is committed to raising funds for the refuge to employ a part time volunteer coordinator.
