Refuge Discovery Trips

Explore one of Alaska’s 16 National Wildlife Refuges with Refuge staff and other Friends members.  Experience the refuge as a visitor would only with insider guidance.  Camp and travel by canoes, rafts, boats or by foot.  Some trips will include a volunteer project.  All will include meeting refuge staff, learning about the refuge and getting ideas for future volunteer opportunities.  The purpose of these trips is to give you an opportunity to really know one of the refuges and their staff and other Friends members.  Trips will vary in length, difficulty and expense.  Participants will share expenses for food and transportation when necessary.  This is a members only opportunity.  Join here.

To share your ideas for trips you would like to see for 2023 or beyond or for more information contact Poppy Benson, Outreach Coordinator,
