Our Partners

Nature does not recognize human-made boundaries. In order to conserve our natural and cultural resources effectively, we must work with others to bridge these boundaries. Partnerships foster creative solutions to challenging situations and often the results are greater than the sum of the parts.


Do you have a youth or adult group who would like an educational program? We work with local schools and community groups to offer programs on the Refuge or at your location. Our environmental education or wilderness safety programs are tailored to fit your groups needs. Contact Becca Frager, the Complex Visitor Services manager, at rebecca_frager@fws.gov to learn more.
