Partners for Fish and Wildlife SignPartners play a key role in carrying out the mission of Big Stone Wetland Management District.

Friends Group Information

Most refuges and wetland management districts across the country have a private, voluntary support group associated with it known as a “Friends Group.” These groups of volunteers from the local community are committed to stewardship of refuge or district lands. Friends’ activities range from on-the-ground preservation, restoration, and management actions to promotion and education of the public about the benefits these lands provide to our quality of life. Big Stone Wetland Management District is currently in the process of forming a Friends Group and are actively seeking and welcoming thoughts on how to involve the community in district land stewardship to further this endeavor. Call or email the refuge headquarters for more information at 320-273-2191 or
