It's FRIENDSGiving Season!

Dear Friend,

As we near the end of this unprecedented year we look forward to 2021 with hopeful anticipation and endless possibilities! Two of the most exciting things we have planned are an innovative new youth education program, Bird Scouts, in addition to undergoing a full Refuge Tree Inventory and Assessment project! In order to accomplish this and more we are aiming to raise $10,000 through our End of Year Fundraising campaign.

Thank you,
Janelle Wicks, FOMR Executive Director
