Nature Store is open for season April - October, 2022
The Friends of Turnbull Nature Store is located inside the TNWR Administration Building. It is staffed by Friends of Turnbull member volunteers and is open on weekend days (Saturday and Sunday) from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm from April through October each year (plus special occasions like WinterFest).
In addition Friends of Turnbull NWR select Nature Store items are available everyday, year-round on consignment at Copy Junction, 1921 First St, Cheney, WA.
Nature Store Volunteers have a very important role enabling the opening or closing of the store, making sales, and greeting visitors. The Nature Store schedule provides for 2 volunteer shifts each week-end day: 11:00 am - 1:30pm and 1:30 - 4:00 pm.
Store Volunters are trained in operating the POS system in the store for making sales, and in opening and closing the store. We are recruiting volunteers now. For more information please contact our Nature Store Management team.
The Nature Store is stocked with t-shirts, sweatshirts, caps, field guides, children's books, Audubon bird toys, other educational materials and art objects. The proceeds of the store benefit the Friends of Turnbull for their work to support the mission of the Refuge through education, research, and habitat restoration.
Store visitors can also get general information about the Refuge, check out the Kids Wildlife Viewing Backpacks for your visit to the Refuge, and get brochures and Refuge maps for your visit. You may want to make it your first stop inside the Refuge, watch for the sandwich board which says the "Store is Open".
