Make a Difference! 


What We Do

We assist the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in their mission to conserve, protect, and enhance fish,

wildlife, plants, and their habitats.  We raise money through our activities, sponsorships, and

donations to financially support programs at the refuges that funding may not be

available from the refuges' budget.

Where We Work

The Friends support and assist the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at  the Lacombe, La. Southeast Louisiana National Wildlife Refuges Complex Visitor Center with staffing, environmental

education programs, and special events.  We also participate in refuge events at

many of their southeast Louisiana refuges.
