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

  • Owl Day — We had about 500 visitors on a beautiful January day! Everyone seemed to have a great time including Winston, the great horned owl from the Ogden Nature Center. A big thank you to all who helped make the day a success.

  • We are now looking forward to Eagle Day on the 10th of February. Don’t miss out on the fun!
