Friends of Trinity River Refuge

Champion Lake fall colors / Gary Holmes © In July of 2000, a group of volunteers at Trinity River National Wildlife Refuge created the Friends of Trinity River Refuge.

The non-profit organization is committed to preserving and enhancing the refuge through conservation, research, and education and serves as a liaison between the refuge and the public. Their membership represents the diverse users of the refuge and interested public, including hunters, anglers, birdwatchers, wildlife enthusiasts, and ranchers. They contribute significant effort and resources that benefit the refuge and its wildlife conservation mission.

Friends Mission Statement: To support, expand, promote, and enhance the refuge and its use for recreational, educational, and scientific research purposes. To accomplish this mission the Friends will:

  • Serve in a cooperative partnership with refuge management to provide funds, volunteer labor, and in-kind resources as required to meet the needs and goals of the refuge.  
  • Promote public awareness of and participation in conservation goals and activities on the refuge through educational, scientific, civic, and charitable activities.  
  • Provide assistance to refuge personnel on projects to develop and improve the refuge's visitor programs and public use facilities.  
  • Serve as an advocate for the acquisition of wetlands and associated habitats within the Lower Trinity River Floodplain.
