Friends of Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge

The "Spit" at the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge was formed during the Vashon Glacial era ten to Twenty Thousand years ago. An easterly flowing shore current aided by prevailing westerly and north westerly winds caused an eastward drift of material that formed the sand spit we see today.

Big or small, short or tall, young or old, indoorsy or outdoorsy, there are many opportunities to help with the "Friends". Anyone can make a contribution of time or money to help make the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge a better place for education and wildlife through the efforts of the "Friends of Dungeness Wildlife Refuge"!


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