Friends Membership

Become a Member of Friends

We invite you to become a member of the Friends of Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge! Our organization, which was formed in 1990, has more than 2500 members from all over the United States and Canada.

We are an all-volunteer, not-for-profit corporation. Because we don't pay salaries and have few administrative costs, we are able to use the membership dues and donations we collect along with the profits from the Blue Heron Gift Shoppe to fund educational and recreational programs at Bombay Hook.

Select one of our seven membership plans, which are listed in the table to the right.

Becoming a member offers special privileges:

  • You get a 10% discount on all items sold in the Refuge Store;
  • You will receive a free subscription to the Friends's newsletter;
  • You are eligible to join the Friends birding club;
  • You are eligible for membership in the Dover Federal Credit Union;
  • You will have voting privileges at the annual meeting.
