Things continue to move forward for the Green River National Wildlife Refuge and the Friends of Green River National Wildlife Refuge, group. The Friends held another successful art auction event at the Farmer and Frenchman Winery on September 29, 2022. A great tip of the hat and great thanks goes to Jule McClellan for acting as the Arts Chair for this event for the Friends group; as well as the National Art Exhibit held at the Sullivan Center at Henderson Community College, later in the month. The art works on display at both events were outstanding! We will not be holding an in person Art Auction in the fall of 2023; but, we are working on developing an online Art Auction Event for later in the fall or early winter.
Looking into the future; the USFWS has acquired some more lands as you will see in Michael Johnson’s report, (below); and, they are actively working with other willing sellers on other acquisitions to expand the footprint of the Refuge.
