Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge Introduces Friends Group
Virginia Beach, VA – Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge Society has recently organized as the official Friend’s group in support of and as a partner with Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
Refuge Friend’s groups are non-profit organizations comprised of dedicated community members who work to support their local national wildlife refuges, to help improve refuges for wildlife and people. Upcoming projects for the newly formed Society include installing and maintaining osprey platforms and the creation of a plant-identification walk along Back Bay NWR’s popular Raptor Trail.
Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1938 as a refuge and sanctuary for migratory waterfowl and other wildlife. The Refuge located just south of Sandbridge in southeastern Virginia Beach, is open from dawn to dusk. More information can be found online at the BBNWR official webpage, the official Facebook page, or by calling the Refuge at 757-301-7329.
The BBNWR Society is currently seeking members who would like to join them in this new adventure. Please visit www.backbaynwrsociety.org or www.facebook.com/backbaynwrsociety for more information about the Society and free membership. The Society is looking forward to this new partnership and working with the community to meet shared conservation goals.
