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.

We work closely on various projects with North Dakota Game and Fish Department, Ducks Unlimited, County Wildlife Clubs, North Dakota State University Extension Service, University of North Dakota, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Valley City State University, Prairie Water and local schools.
