* Supporting the operating activities of the Refuges

* Advocating for the Refuges to the community, news media, and government officials

* Encouraging people to volunteer their time and talents for the benefit of the Refuges

* Recruiting Refuge Stewards members and volunteers

* Coordinating public outreach and environmental education programs in local communities to generate awareness and support

* Monitoring water quality and coordinating with state and local agencies and the public to improve water quality of streams impacting the Refuges
