Friends of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.

Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is fortunate to have the support of a non-profit organization known as the Friends of the Bosque. The Friends is made up of dedicated people who love the refuge and help in many ways. They organize volunteer efforts to build and maintain trails; they apply for and administer grants that benefit wildlife; they help host popular annual events like the Festival of the Cranes; and they operate the refuge’s Nature Store, funds used to support projects on the refuge.

To learn more about how you can become involved as a volunteer or a Friend, stop by the refuge’s visitor center or visit
