Ten-Year Strategic Goals – 2013-2022

Friends of Ottawa NWR provides substantial support for Refuge Complex operations, organizing and funding a variety of programs and projects. We will make major contributions to the long-term health and vibrancy of the Refuge and its management.

People from near and far experience the Refuge Complex in person and through the internet as a world-class destination for wildlife enthusiasts, hunters, students, and families. We will bring increasing numbers of visitors here without harming the wildlife or the habitat.

With significant help from Friends of Ottawa, the Refuge Complex will grow. We will increase the amount of habitat available and grow wildlife populations in accordance with the Comprehensive Conservation Plan.

Friends of Ottawa will be a strong and influential voice with national, state and local leaders about the importance of conservation in general and of the Refuge Complex in particular. We will actively advocate for the land, water, air, and wildlife.

Friends of Ottawa will be a strong organization with sufficient human and financial capacity to achieve our mission and goals. We will build a structure that is durable, sustainable, and held up as a national model among Friends associations.
