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".


The Friends of Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is a 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in 1997, to support the mandate of the national wildlife refuge to protect and enhance wildlife and their habitats through education, research, and habitat preservation and restoration. All donations go to supporting the mission-related education and outreach programs of the Friends group.


The Friends of Turnbull has opened an e-store for anyone who would like to purchase a T-shirt to show support for the Refuge, even when the Nature Store is not physically open. You can visit the e-store, place an order and your shirts will be delivered to your home. Check it out and share this link with your friends. You can click on the shirt pictures to go directly to the e-store. Short sleeve, long sleeve, sweatshirts in each design available, variable pricing!!
