You have helped Friends of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge make it possible to offer virtual programs, continue land restoration, and even provide some new refuge access points. Because of you, we were able to keep making an impact to the land, the wildlife and the mental health of our community.
Your support of the Friends group is so important because government funding only covers a portion of the total expenses needed to manage a nearly 11,000-acre refuge…Just a mere 59 cents/acre per year of government funding is allocated for the National Wildlife Refuge System. Funds raised will continue to support our education, conservation, and restoration efforts at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.
