Give today to protect Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.

"If you could do something to help the world around you, why wouldn't you?"
-Drake Schorling, age 13.

Friends of Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge relies on your help to protect and conserve Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. The generosity of members and donors like you allows Friends of Ottawa NWR to provide transportation grants that allow kids to explore the great outdoors, fund maintenance and restoration initiatives, and arrange stipends for refuge interns to help with all of these meaningful projects.

Do your part for conservation and education in this critical stopover habitat and become a Friends of Ottawa NWR member. In return, you will receive discounts in The Rookery Nature Store, quarterly e-newsletters and biweekly updates, access to Members Only presentations and tours, discounts from a wide variety of businesses in the Oak Harbor area, and the reward of knowing that you're supporting Ohio's only National Wildlife Refuge Complex!

Best Friend level members and up have the option to participate in vendor opportunities during special events at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. Trumpeter Club members and up will have acknowledgement in newsletters, annual report, social media, and signage during events.
