Whats in store for 2014? The following items are planned for this year.
Our annual meeting is free and open to the public. This year it will be at the Wilda Marston Theatre at the Loussac Library, on Tuesday, April 22rd at 6:30 pm. Our illustrated presentation will be by ADF&G’s manager Tom Griffin & staffer Drew Hamilton of the McNeil River State Game Sanctuary and Refuge. It will be a great evening of bears and life at McNeil River. Following the presentation we will have a brief discussion between FOMR staff and the public regarding some problems that have come up that threaten the McNeil as we know it, along with next years closure of the Round Island Sanctuary due to budget cuts. Please join us!!!
Photo ID Book updates:
We are editing the remaining copies of the 2010 ID Book for a next edition, making them current. They are not quite ready yet, but should be ready in the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience. If you would like to pre-order, please do so using our “Donate” button and indicate it is for the new Photo ID Fieldbook.
We are in the process of upgrading our financial system to better serve our members, and help Friends McNeil River grow.
Developments with the new management plans for the sanctuary:
We’re investigating problems with the re-writing of the management plans of not only McNeil River, but also helping other Friends groups with nearby sanctuaries and critical habitat areas.
