Welcome to the Bong Naturalist Association
Bong Naturalist Association, otherwise known as BNA, is an all-volunteer friends group that is dedicated to support and promote the educational, interpretative, and recreational goals of Richard Bong State Recreation Area.
We partner with the park to enhance and protect the natural resources and to educate visitors on the need for conservation and preservation. Bong Naturalist Association was founded as a 501(c) 3 nonprofit corporation in 1994.
All of our activities and money raised are used to benefit Richard Bong State Recreation Area and its visitors.
