Growing The Refuge

The Friends of Necedah National Wildlife Refuge have a long tradition of supporting the many worthwhile activities of our wonderful staff. From providing funds for much-needed equipment to volunteers for after-school programs that served over 6,000 youngsters this year alone, we have always been there when needed.  We are always in need of volunteers to help us at the front desk, in the Karner Korner nature store and in the field. To find out more about volunteer opportunities, call the refuge at (608) 565-2551 or e-mail us at

On Our Radar:

Here’s just some of the improvements we are investigating for the future at your refuge.

  • Renovation of the observation tower to include repainting, site work, and replacement of the spotting scope.
  • Placement of new directional signs on refuge roads to make it easier to find trail heads and points of interest.
  • Providing a new kiosk to mark the Whitetail Trail.
  • Continuing maintenance of existing kiosks.
