Friends of Turnbull NWR (FOTNWR), is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that
helps support the Refuge's programs. Their mission is to support the mandate of
the refuge to protect and enhance wildlife and their habitats through
education, research, habitat preservation and restoration.
Friends of Turnbull bookstore, located in the new Complex Headquarters, is open
on weekends from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm from April 1st through October 31st and
reopens its doors for their annual winter festival held in early December. The
store offers books, T-shirts, sweatshirts and other gift ideas. Annually,
several activities are hosted by Friends of Turnbull which may include bird
walks, photography workshops, plant and biological drawing classes, and a
railroad history bike trip.
Every year FOT hosts an auction. Proceeds from this worthy event help fund stipends for environmental education volunteers.
