Through member events, communications, advocacy and fundraising, we support the Refuges in

•Providing environmental education in partnership with families and schools
We also support the refuges by:

•Soliciting expertise, ideas, funds, and materials from the community to help make our local refuges outstanding


"We love seeing bison and eagles almost in our backyard at the Arsenal Refuge."
"Without our Friends group, there would be fewer opportunities for low-income students to come to the Refuge and fewer resources for all to engage with the Refuge."
"We need to keep our Refuges healthy by supporting our Friends group."
"Thanks for helping to bring back the black-footed ferret!"
