The Friends of Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge are taking a walk on the wild side, and we’d like you to join us! In 1997, concerned citizens from all parts of the United States formed the FBSNWR with the task of preserving and protecting the last large parcel of undeveloped and accessible land on the Alabama coastline. The organization is a nonprofit citizens group that works to increase public and governmental awareness of the value and fragility of the refuge. We also work to obtain funds, through donations or grants, that go toward helping with management of the refuge as well as obtaining needed wildlife habitat.
The refuge comprises more than 7,000 acres of wildlife habitat and is located west of Gulf Shores, Alabama on the Fort Morgan peninsula in Baldwin County. A portion of the refuge is also located on Little Dauphin Island in Mobile County.
