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.
Great River National Wildlife Refuge continues to build and maintain strong partnerships with a diversity of agencies, organizations, local communities, businesses and more. Recent partnerships included the planting of trees on the Long Island Division in cooperation with the Army Corps of Engineers; planning and organization of the "Quincy 5-Miler" event with local community members; construction of a water control structure at the Delair Division in cooperation with Ducks Unlimited; and more.
