Friends Connect – Your Online National Refuge Resource

Connect, Share, Learn

The Refuge Friends Connect website is a place for Friends to:

  • Connect with each other,
  • Share your experiences, and
  • Learn from each other by providing support and encouragement.

This is your website to help you and your group find inspiration, motivate others, and have the knowledge and skills to meet the challenges you face as you support wildlife conservation, your community, the local refuge, and the Refuge System.

On this site you’ll find resources to expand your knowledge, a directory of all Friends, forums to pose questions and get advice, a calendar to share what you’re planning and see what others are doing, and news of what’s happening around the Refuge System — a place to do a bit of bragging.

Your participation will make this site a valuable tool. So become a member, join in the discussions, and add content. Within the Friends community there is a vast amount of knowledge that when shared strengthens every individual, groups, and our collective effort to support wildlife conservation.

Connecting Urban Communities with Nature at San Diego Bay & Tijuana Slough National Wildlife Refuges

In February 2015 Summit Scholars of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) produced a documentary film for the San Diego National Wildlife Refuges, highlighting two of the four Refuges they manage. This movie hopes to inspire the neighbors who surround these refuges to come walk the trails, and experience exhibits and various environmental educational programs. San Diego National Wildlife Refuges manage wildlife and habitats, from coastal marshes to oak woodlands; connecting people to the rich biological diversity in their backyards. Visit us today!

Refuges featured in this movie:
