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.
The Two Ponds Preservation Foundation is a local Friend's Group committed to the preservation and enhancement of the Refuge.
The Foundation was founded in 1990 for the purpose of preserving wetlands and natural habitat specifically but not limited to urban areas. It is the intent of the foundation that land(s) which the foundation helps secure and preserve be open for the enjoyment of the public, and for assisting children in urban areas to study and better understand their natural heritage. The Foundation shall not engage in activities that would be outside the statues of the State of Colorado for a Colorado Nonprofit Corporation. The Foundation recognizes that this natural heritage is a valuable resource with distinct cultural and educational values.
The Two Ponds Preservation Foundation works in cooperation with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service which is the managing owner of the refuge to conserve the wetlands and natural wildlife habitat and provide environmental education opportunities for the community.
The Foundation formed partnerships with Boy Scout Troops, Sierra Elementary School, Cogan Construction, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Environmental Protection Agency, Colorado State Parks, Colorado Division of Wildlife, Great Outdoors Colorado, City of Arvada and other partners too numerous to mention here to successfully complete many projects on the Refuge.
