Why Should I Join, Sponsor, or Donate? Well.. personally we think you should join because there are many things the Friends does to promote conservation on the High Plains Refuges. We are planning on doing some amazing things in 2020. Some of our 2020 goals is to offer more wildflower and seed collecting workshops, as well as nature exploration hikes. Our goal is to connect with people onsite in and share the amazing nature of all the High Plains Refuges.
