Meade Natural Heritage Association


The next range day is Saturday April 8.  Please note this change (we will not be holding a range day on Easter Sunday April 9.)

We want your help to maintain and improve the refuge hunting habitat. Every third Sunday of the month (non-hunting season included) we help maintain the grounds of the refuge.  This is a great opportunity to give back to the Patuxent Research Refuge (PRR) and the MNHA hunting community, meet fellow hunters, and peek around to see what the animals are doing.  Read more on the Volunteer Opportunities page or contact us at volunteercoordinator@mnha.het.

We are not accepting deer donations for the Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry program until further notice due to limited resources.  

The 2023 Membership and Maryland Qualification Range Days are posted.

The 2022/2023 regulations are here or click the "Hunting Regulations" link on the menu to the left.

MNHA is hiring part-time Hunting Control Managers! Flexible shifts, $15/hour. Contact for details.

Permit sales for the 2022-2023 Hunting Season are available at the
 Hunting Control Station (HCS) located here during operating hours (Monday - Saturday).

Area W is CLOSED due to Wavyleaf Basketgrass until further notice.  Please notify hunting control if you find this invasive grass species while hunting on the refuge.  Additional information and pictures can be found here.
