The Friends of Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge was incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 2006 with the purpose to promote, protect, and provide resources to preserve and enhance the refuge for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

The Friends fulfills our purpose in many ways:

A future project is to assist the refuge in the creation of an environmental education center at the refuge.

The Friends support the Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge and its programs in cooperation with the USFWS, advocating for the lands under Refuge management and for educational and restoration programs. The Friends envision the Refuge as a destination for visitors from around the Treasure Valley as well as from across the country and the world.
