Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge of birds or wildflowers or butterflies? What about collecting information about the plants and wildlife in your own backyard or on a refuge?

There are countless ways to support wildlife and their habitat on National Wildlife Refuges, from volunteering to joining a Friends group to participating in a citizen science project or purchasing a Federal Duck Stamp. Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat in the National Wildlife Refuge System.
