Our Friends group has secured grants and funding from private and public sources for habitat restoration, special events and education projects. They serve as advocates in the local community, sponsor large-scale outreach events, conduct fund-raising activities to support environmental education programs, and help operate and maintain refuge facilities and visitor center.
