The Friends of Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge strive to joyfully connect our community with the wonder of the Refuge. Our mission is to support the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge Complex. We are dedicated to protecting and restoring refuge habitats as well as providing nature education and recreation. We serve the Wapato Lake NWR in Gaston and the Tualatin River NWR in Sherwood. These are your public lands and we are all stewards of these special places.
