Support the Refuge
Refuge staff members are working with residents on Drummond Island to form a friends group called the Harbor Island National Wildlife Refuge Preservation Society. The mission of this group will be “to support and promote Harbor Island National Wildlife Refuge and the National Wildlife Refuge System in its efforts to conserve habitat and wildlife. The society is dedicated to the protection and restoration of the refuge for the benefit of fish and wildlife and for public education and recreation.” If you are interested in assisting with the creation of the friends group please contact Mark Vaniman the refuge manager at (906) 586-5891 x11.Mark_Vaniman@fws.gov
