About the Friends of the Wichitas Association

The Friends of the Wichitas is a 501(c)3 organization established to support the Refuge and provide outreach opportunities to the visiting public. All donations are tax-deductible.

The Friends promote understanding and appreciation of the Refuge and assist the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in meeting its mandates.

The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge itself consists of 59,020 acres of unique habitats in the ancient Wichita Mountains in southwestern Oklahoma. Located about 20 minutes northwest of Lawton, Oklahoma, attracts between 1.52 and 1.72 million visitors each year.

For tour information and reservations, please check out our links under Tours & Hikes. For more information on on the Refuge, please visit the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service website.
