Friends Of Whitfield Wildlife Conservation Area

Whitfield Wildlife and The Freinds of Whitfield will be on a soft opening. This means the conservation at Whitfield Wildlife Conservation will be open to the public from 8:00-4:30, Thursday-Saturday. The visitor center and bathrooms will remain closed. 


We are a nonprofit, volunteer organization dedicated to supporting the Whitfield Wildlife Conservation Area by promoting habitat restoration, education and conservation.   We encourage the public to visit the Whitfield, see some wildlife, and learn something about the diversity of plants and animals that call this place home.
