USFWS employee with Volunteer 512x219

From its start in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge System has owed its very existence to concerned citizens eager to protect America's natural resources.

The Tewaukon National Wildlife Refuge's Friends Group, Prairie Pothole Partners, was organized to help assist Refuge staff with habitat restoration and management and environmental education activities. This group of volunteers help with everything from collecting native seed, identifying and pulling invasive species to bringing conservation messages and educational events and programs to young people. Members also participate in wildlife surveys! If this sounds interesting to you, send an email to for a membership form.
