On August 14, 2008, Department of Interior, Deputy Secretary Lynn Scarlett took time out of her busy schedule for a visit to Clarence Cannon National Wildlife Refuge. During her visit she met with refuge personnel and installed the blue goose sign on the newly renovated headquarters office/visitor center.

Shorebirds, herons, egrets, and pelicans were just some of the species in abundance for viewing as receding floodwaters from the spring and early summer left behind expanses of mudflats and shallow water wetlands. She was impressed by the abundance of colonial wading birds and crayfish on the refuge and enjoyed close-up views of mature bald eagles. Even though her time at the refuge was short, the staff thoroughly enjoyed her visit.
