Friends of the MCRWR



U.S.Fish & Wildlife manages the refuge and its facilities, providing a ‘homebase’ for our ESE program. We cooperatively provide volunteer opportunities, events, and learning experiences for the public.


Lower Columbia Basin Audubon Society first partnered with Friends by housing their bird collection at McNaryNWR as essential element of our program. Since 1997 Audubon members have volunteered for programs, events, boardwork, and interpretive support in the Education Center.


We share volunteers and collaborate on community events with the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center.
