WHO WE ARE, THE FRIENDS OF RED RIVER NWR
The mission of the Friends of Red River NWR is to be an advocate for the Red River National Wildlife Refuge by promoting and participating in the conservation, enhancement, and appreciation of our native wildlife communities through education, fund raising, development of partnerships, and development of onsite projects for volunteers.
Our vision is to be a growing, diverse group of engaged and informed supporters who assist the refuge in reaching its full potential.
We are a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization operating under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and a Memorandum of Agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
We are an affiliate member of the National Wildlife Refuge Association.
