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 Event

  • Eagle Day was a great success with over 500 people attending. And, of course, the live eagle was a great treat. A big shout out to the Ogden Nature Center for supporting us in these events!
  • Now comes Swan Day on 10 March 2018. And this one is really special. We will be inaugurating the new WILDLIFE VIEWING TOWER.
