    Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge is fortunate to have a wonderful Friends Group, Amigos de la Sevilleta who's members volunteer their time to assist refuge staff in achieving the mission of the wildlife refuge. The Organization is non-profit and welcomes new members. Members make Amigos possible and membership is open to all. Amigos de la Sevilleta raises money through member’s fees and special events. Grants and store sales also contribute. We help by volunteering in a variety of jobs at the refuge. We educate people about the refuge through our newsletter and at tours and activities at the refuge and in the surrounding communities. Amigos members may also help with refuge management programs, habitat restoration projects, and the Gunnison's prairie dog reintroduction program. For more information on how you can assist the refuge, go to our Get Involved page linked in the right hand navigation menu.

  • On-line eBird Trail Tracker

    Launched in 2002 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, eBird Trail Tracker is a real-time, online checklist program that has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds. A birder simply enters when, where, and how they went birding, then fills out a checklist of all the birds seen and heard during the outing. The observations of each participant join those of others in an international network of eBird users. The link below allows you to set-up an account in eBird to submit your observations. The Refuge appreciates you entering your bird sightings on the eBird online checklist program. For more information about eBird go to: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/about/
