Membership has many benefits

We invite you to become a member of the Friends of Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge! Our organization was formed in 1990 and has more than 2500 members from all over the United States and Canada.

We are an all-volunteer, not-for-profit corporation. Because we don't pay salaries and have few administrative costs, we are able to use the membership dues and donations we collect along with the profits from the Blue Heron Gift Shoppe to fund educational and recreational programs at Bombay Hook.
