The Friends of Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge is an energetic organization passionate about fostering a wild future for Tamarac. Established in 1991, it has grown to be an active advocate and volunteer force for the Refuge. This nonprofit organization champions an environmental educational program, special events, volunteer program, habitat restoration efforts and more! The group supports the work of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and serves a conduit to connect the community to the resource.

The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.  Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water disputes in the most environmentally protective manner.  Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.
