Enjoy & Support your Denver-metro Urban National Wildlife Refuges

The Friends of the Front Range Wildlife Refuges (FFRWR) is a membership community that supports the two largest national wildlife refuges in the Denver metro area–the Rocky Mountain Arsenal and the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuges.

Through member events, communications, advocacy and fundraising, we support the refuges in

  • Conserving and restoring native habitat and wildlife
  • Giving the public opportunities to experience wildlife and nature near a major metropolitan area
  • Providing environmental education in partnership with families and schools

We also support the refuges by:

  • Keeping our congressional leaders and other Friends Groups informed about the successes and concerns of our refuges
  • Soliciting expertise, ideas, funds, and materials from the community to help make our local refuges outstanding

Ultimately, our vision is to create two refuges in which native wildlife and habitat are maintained in a healthy ecosystem that is rich and diverse and that contributes to the education and recreational enjoyment of people from all walks of life.
