Welcome to The Friends of Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge Website

Friends of the Aroostook NWR welcome you. We are continually working in conjunction with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on restoring wildlife and bird habitat on part of the former Loring Air Force Base in Limestone, ME. Parking lots have been turned into grasslands for wildlife and birds, thirteen miles of trails have been constructed for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, photography, bird watching and wildlife viewing. The Aroostook National Wildlife Refuge currently contains 10 ponds, in addition to Greenlaw Brook, Willard Brook, Butterfield Brook and Little Madawaska Stream.

Here you will be able to check the upcoming events, view photographs taken around the refuge, read about the history of the Friends and FWS, view our trail maps, print forms if you wish to become a member, follow links to other web-sites related to NWR and more. Hope you enjoy this site.
