The Friends of Sunkhaze Meadows NWR is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to protecting Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. We currently have 170 members and we would love to have you join our group as well!

The Friends group is involved in many activities — building boardwalks, trail maintenance, and community outreach are some of the things you can do as a volunteer to help protect the refuge. You can visit Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge any time to enjoy Maine wildlife observation. Once a peat bog destined to be destroyed by a peat mining company, Sunkhaze Meadows is now a sanctuary for a variety of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and insects.

Sunkhaze Meadows is one of more than 500 national wildlife refuges in the United States. The mission of the refuge is to preserve the peatland ecosystem and maintain a biologically-diverse area for native wildlife and plants, while offering opportunities for wildlife-dependent visitor activities. In keeping with this purpose, the refuge is open to visitors year around during daylight hours and offers recreational opportunities that are compatible with refuge wildlife and habitat management objectives.
