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

So sorry the Visitors’ Center has been closed since early March because of COVID-19. We are hoping we will be allowed to open again soon, but no date has been set as of now. We sincerely hope to see you all again soon.

In the meantime, the Auto Tour is open and we have a brand new observation deck funded by the Friends of the Bear River Refuge. Feel free to come check it out!
