The Friends of the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FONC)
The Friends of the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge, Inc. (Friends) was established June 1, 1974 as a non-profit organization by 40 individuals who shared a common goal of preserving and protecting the natural and cultural resources that are the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (Nature Center). The Friends evolved over the years from hands-on running of Nature Center programs to our present function as chief financial supporter. Learn more from a 2014 commemorative anniversary video.
Tax-deductible memberships and donations through the Friends allow us and the Nature Center to provide critical services and programs. You can learn more about the Friends organization, including financial information and programs, online on Guidestar, an organization that collects and shares information about nonprofits.
