Friends of the Savannah Coastal Wildlife Refuges (FSCWR)
is an organization of volunteers from coastal Georgia and South Carolina dedicated to preserving and protecting the seven National Wildlife Refuges in our area and the Refuge System as a whole.

These refuges, managed by the United States Fish & Wildlife Service,  are part of the National Wildlife Refuge System, which consists of more than 565 Refuges across the US, the Caribbean, and the Pacific.

We were formed in 2007 and granted tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status by the US Internal Revenue Service in 2008.

Many of us share the concern that our children are growing up estranged from the natural world. Children who grow up without contact with and love for the natural world are unlikely to be motivated to protect and defend our wilderness heritage as adults. Educating our youth and instilling in them a love for nature is part of our vision. The Kingfisher Discovery Center will provide a facility to allow many more children to participate in educational activities.

    Welcome to the first major redesign of the Friends web site.  I'm learning a lot with this project, but I still have work to do: please bear with me.  I'm sure there will be errors found (broken links, grammar errors, etc.), so please let me know when you spot one and I will try to correct it promptly.
