 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. Join the Friends of the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex or contact Finley NWR to do your part.  


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 the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex support the refuges through work parties, educational programs, refuge events, and funds provided by the volunteer-run Wild Goose Nature Store in the Finley NWR administrative building.   

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. Contact the Friends of the WVNWRC or Refuge staff to learn how you can get involved.
