Welcome to Friends of the Bear River Refuge website. We encourage you to visit often to see the latest news and activities.

Our Mission

This group is devoted to the promotion, appreciation, and conservation of the wildlife, birds, and habitat of the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. Officially established as a not-for-profit charitable organization in 1998, we are partners with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Upcoming Events

Nature Camp 2017 was a great success. We could tell by the smiles on the faces of the students and their parents as they left on the last day.  We have three great events to tell you about now: two new ones and a traditional one. The first is a Nature Journaling Workshop to be led by Angela Zhou. Here is the information for that:

In addition, there will be a STORY TIME on July 22nd at 10:30 a.m. at the Avocet Corner Bookstore. Bring the little ones for a story and a surprise! We hope to have this become a monthly activity if there is enough interest!

And secondly, it is time for our annual Photo Contest. Check out all the information on the 2017 Photo Contest link above.
