interested in assisting Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge.
We are part of a nationwide network of Friends groups that support our national wildlife refuges and the National Wildlife
Refuge System carry out public use missions including education, interpretation, and wildlife-oriented recreation.

to promote conservation, awareness, and appreciation
of the Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge
and to provide assistance to refuge programs.
Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge is located in east-central Mississippi. This 48,000 acre refuge was established in 1940 and
contains a diversity of habitats.
The endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, featured on the FONR logo, relies on the refuge for its existence in east-central
Noxubee is one of more than 500 refuges that make up the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Refuge System.
The Blue Goose identifies refuges which are found in all 50 states.
