    Volunteers are essential to maintaining healthy habitats and creating learning and recreational opportunities for local communities. Refuges are fortunate to have volunteer groups like the Columbia Gorge Refuge Stewards, who's mission is to support the three refuges in the Columbia Gorge. They do this through on and off site restoration, education, and outreach activities.

  • Federal Duck Stamp

    Duck Stamp 2018

    Originally created in 1934 as federal licenses required for hunting migratory waterfowl, Federal Duck Stamps have a much larger purpose today. Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection. The Federal Duck Stamp has been called one of the most successful conservation programs ever initiated.
