Friends of Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge 

The Friends of Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is a non-profit Friends organization, established in 2008, for the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge.

The Refuge and the Friends are located in eastern North Carolina on the Albemarle-Pamlico Peninsula. The Refuge Headquarters is in Columbia, North Carolina.

Our Mission...
is to help protect the natural treasures of the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge by promoting informed public awareness of the refuge and its importance to all of us and future generations, raising funds, providing willing hands for various needed projects, and being a friend to the refuge in a variety of ways.

Bald Cypress Tree – located on the south "handle" of The Frying Pan on the west side of Alligator River in Tyrrell County. This is just outside the Pocosin Lakes NWR, but one can see the tree from the other side of the handle in the refuge. Apparently this tree suffered severe damage from lightening or a storm many, many years ago. It grew around its injury and took on this most interesting shape. – Jack Spruill
