FRIENDS OF STILLWATER NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE is a 501(c)(3) non- profit group working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to increase awareness and appreciation of the Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge Complex and surrounding areas. Friends of Stillwater NWR welcomes anyone who wishes to volunteer with refuge programs and projects. We assist in on-site habitat and wildlife projects, community outreach, education programs, special events, fundraising and advocacy.
