Supporting The Okefenokee NWR Since 1990



In March of 1990, Okefenokee Wildlife League, Inc. (OWL), in cooperation with the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, was established as a non-profit organization. All donations and funds generated from the sale of books, photographs and other educational items are used to sponsor League projects. Funds are also used to purchase additional refuge equipment and fund educational programs.
