The Friend’s mission is to support, protect, and enhance the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge and its wildlife habitat, and to broaden public awareness and participation in its environmental, cultural, and educational opportunities.
The Friends of The Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge (Friends) was founded in 1999 by volunteers interested in supporting habitat restoration and educational projects at the 5,200-acre Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge (Refuge) in Ridgefield, Washington. The Friends Board of Directors currently consists of 11 members from the local SW Washington and Portland Oregon areas, and a general paid membership of approximately 150. The Friends currently has 2 full-time field staff supported by grant funding and a part-time administrative assistant. Friends’ staff and volunteers coordinate habitat restoration projects with volunteers including native plantings and invasive plant control, and natural history education/cultural interpretation programs for school students and adults on the refuge.
