Partnerships

PFW logoThe refuge routinely partners with State Agencies, Universities, and Nongovernmental Organizations to complete projects on the refuges. These partnerships typically benefit refuge habitats, infrastructure, recreational opportunities, higher education, and the local economy.

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

The Sandhills Prairie Refuge Association is a Friends Group established to support the refuges of the Fort Niobrara/Valentine NWR Complex. Contact the refuge office for membership information. Please feel free to contact us at 402-376-3789, if you are interested in partnering with us on a conservation project.
