SELA Refuges Programs

Friends of Louisiana Wildlife Refuges

The Friends of Louisiana Wildlife Refuges, Inc. is a non-profit, membership organization that supports and advocates for the SELA Refuges. They sponsor several of the refuge annual events, obtain grants to support refuge projects, conduct fund-raising activities to support environmental education programs and help us operate and maintain the refuge facilities and programs by conducting weekend "work-play" days. We appreciate their support and encourage others to become members of the "Friends" organization.
