From its start in 1903, the National Wildlife Refuge System has owed its very existence to concerned citizens eager to protect America's natural resources. Friends organizations are 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with the unique distinction of having a mission supporting a single refuge, complex of refuges or a program of the Fish and Wildlife Service.
Friends organizations are crucial to the collective mission of the Refuge System to conserve and protect the wildlife of this great nation and help millions of Americans understand that their actions today determine the legacy we leave for tomorrow.
Refuges we support are (1) the Bill Williams River NWR which protects the 40 mile river from Alamo Dam to the Colorado River near Parker Dam, and (2) the Havasu NWR, protecting 30 river miles from Needles to Lake Havasu City.
Our Friends group has assisted with numerous projects and events including Public Lands Day water trail cleanup, archery days for local students, native tree planting, youth duck hunts, wildlife observation deck restoration, guided nature walks, Friends and Family Fun Days, Teach a Child to Fish Days. We have monthly business and planning meetings between September and May in Golden Shores or Lake Havasu City.

We support the staff of the Bill Williams River NWR near Parker AZ, and the Havasu NWR near Lake Havasu City, AZ, and Topock AZ, in their mission to conserve and protect the refuges. We are a diverse group of outdoor enthusiasts (wildlife observers and photographers, hunters, fishermen, kayakers, environmental educations-regardless of past experience), seeking like-minded individuals to join us in our efforts. Our goals include fund-raising for Refuge projecs and volunteerism to support Refuge projects and events.
