Friends of the Attwater Prairie Chicken Refuge

The mission of the Friends is to assist, enhance and promote the Attwater Prairie Chicken National Wildlife Refuge’s goal of recovering the endangered Attwater’s prairie-chicken and restoring native coastal prairie for the benefit of present and future generations.

The non-profit organization plays an important role supporting many of the refuge’s efforts, including the annual Attwater’s Prairie Chicken Festival and other special events. Friends members help with outreach and education, as well as grant writing, merchandise sales and volunteer coordination.
