The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.

Friends Group Information

The Emiquon Audubon Society was formed in 1999 to promote appreciation and understanding of nature, and to support the conservation of natural resources. Emiquon Audubon Society places special emphasis on protective care of the rich, natural resources of the Illinois River Valley and other, nearby, natural areas. It also partners with similar-minded organizations to promote environmental awareness.

Other Partners

Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water disputes in the most environmentally protective manner. Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.
