The Friends of the Willapa Wildlife Refuge, a nonprofit organization, work to support refuge programs and enhance awareness and appreciation of the Refuge. For this reason, the Friends have teamed up with Coast Community Radio to produce a weekly program, Willapa Nature Notes.

Learn about endangered species, as well as more commonly seen species, from bird expert Dr. Madeline Kalbach and how we can help the refuge, from Refuge Project Manager Jackie Ferrier. Botanist Kathleen Sayce will take the mystery out of what grows, both wanted and unwanted, along our trails, roadsides and backyards. Our production team is Kitt Flemming, from Oysterville’s Shoalwater Storytellers and Bob Duke, Community Outreach Coordinator for the Friends group.
