Volunteers, Friends and Partners Help Refuges Take Flight!


More than 42,000 people volunteer their time and ideas each year to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Whether they work on the land, in a visitor center or with youth, they contribute to the conservation mission that reaches back more than a century.  Become a volunteer or Refuge Friend to contribute your strength on behalf of America’s natural resources. 



From its start in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge System has owed its very existence to concerned citizens eager to protect America's natural resources. 

More than 200 nonprofit Refuge Friends organizations support national wildlife refuges, whether they work with a single refuge, a refuge complex or an entire state.  Friends members are crucial to conserving and protecting our nation’s wildlife and teaching millions of Americans that their actions today determine the conservation legacy of tomorrow. 



The Friends of Stillwater NWR are a 501 c 3 nonprofit group who's mission is to foster awareness and understanding of the refuge through outreach, education and public involvement programs. For more information on how you can be a part of this dynamic group contact them at 775/423-5128 ext. 224 or visit their website (external link) at
