About Us

The Friends of the Erie National Wildlife Refuge is an organization of concerned citizens who appreciate the Refuge’s efforts to protect and improve the natural habitat needed for the wide variety of plants and animals that populate the Refuge grounds as well as providing public recreation and environmental education opportunities.

We provide many vital services to the Refuge such as community outreach, education programs, habitat restoration, special events support, volunteer staff, advocacy and fund raising.
