How MNHA Membership Benefits the Sportsperson & Wildlife

The Meade Natural Heritage Association (MNHA) is an incorporated, non-profit organization that is dedicated to the purpose of wildlife conservation, management, and to promote and support outdoor sporting activities. As part of this program, MNHA manages hunting activities on the refuge, with the distinction of having one of the largest federal public-use hunting programs in the United States in regard to season length and number of hunters. MNHA's members are active throughout the year in support of these activities. Through a wide variety of activities and services, MNHA offers benefits to its members, refuge hunters, the refuge, and our wildlife. Most importantly, MNHA offers the opportunity to GET INVOLVED. Habitat restoration, refuge clean ups and other projects allow sportspeople to give back for the improvement of the refuge and the hunting program. As a volunteer organization, MNHA depends on the contributions of its members.
