Beautiful Spring Day at Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge

Friends of Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge was founded in 2000 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to support the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in protecting the rich habitat of the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge. We provide support for educational, interpretive, and outreach activities that enhance public understanding and promote stewardship for this unique natural resource.
