Friends of Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge believe this refuge is a unique natural resource. They encourage visitors of all ages, and from around the globe, to experience this special place. Their goals include helping visitors and the community to develop a deeper appreciation for, and understanding of, the refuge and its mission. Their work includes assistance with event planning, interpretive and education programs, and providing financial backing for selected programs through fund-raising activities which include building an outdoor classroom.  You can link to the Friends' Facebook page here.
