Introducing our 2016 Annual Report

Urban Wildlife Refuge Initiative


The Friends of Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge formed before the Refuge was established to help preserve the Refuge’s 570 acres for wildlife and future generations. As the non-profit support group for the Refuge, the Friends are now supporting and assisting in the realization of the overall vision to restore native wildlife habitat and the establishment of the Refuge as a community resource. This includes promoting Refuge opportunities and amenities, developing and administering environmental and cultural education programs, providing volunteer support, and fundraising to support Refuge projects and facilities.
