Muscatatuck has an active "Friends" non-profit support group. The Muscatatuck Wildlife Society assists refuge staff in many ways including funding management and visitor service projects, maintaining the historic Myers Cabin and barn, supporting special events, managing the Visitor Center Nature Store, and printing "Duck Tales", a refuge newsletter. Many friends' members also volunteer at the refuge doing educational, interpretive, biological, and maintenance projects. For more information, or for a Muscatatuck Wildlife Society membership brochure, call or e-mail the refuge. The Friends also have a Facebook page- check them out at https://www.facebook.com/MuscatatuckWildlifeSociety
