 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. 



Volunteers Needed!

 

More than 42,000 people volunteer their time and ideas each year with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Do you want to help add nectar species to our prairies for Fender's blue butterfly or introduce a 5 year old (or 90 year old for that matter!) to the wonders of the natural world?  I mean really, who doesn't love acorn woodpeckers and turning over rocks?

Whether you want to help with maintenance, adopt-a-trail, be a roving naturalist, or help with an educational program, we have lots of opportunities for you and could sure use a hand.  It's fun work and it will make you smile. Volunteer with us!  Contact the Visitor Services Manager, Samantha Bartling (samantha_bartling@fws.gov) to learn how you can get involved.

 

Friends of the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex

 

More than 200 nonprofit Refuge Friends organizations support National Wildlife Refuges across the Nation. Friends members are crucial to conserving and protecting our nation’s wildlife and teaching millions of Americans about Refuges. The Friends of the Willamette Valley National Wildlife Refuge Complex support the mission of the Refuges through work parties, outreach, educational programs, events, grant writing, and habitat improvement projects.  Additional funds for Friends' work is generated by the volunteer-run Wild Goose Nature Store located inside the Complex Headquarters Building at the William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge.
