We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the mission of the Southeast Louisiana Wildlife Refuges.
The principal purpose for which this non-profit corporation is organized is to engage in promoting better awareness, appreciation, and conservation of the natural environment on the refuges of the Southeast Louisiana Refuges Complex: to promote programs and services that will enhance the quality of the refuges under the jurisdiction of the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, Southeast Louisiana Refuges; and, to work with other agencies and organizations to raise funds and direct resources towards visitor services, educational, interpretative, and environmental projects which, without assistance would not be accomplished solely through the efforts of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
WHAT WE DO
We support our refuges, our local communities and our organization through education, building partnerships and fund raising. The Board of Directors of the Friends of
Louisiana Wildlife Refuges (FLWR) is guided by our by-laws.
Minutes of our Board Meetings, Tax Documentation and Financial Reports are available
