It took nearly a year and a half, but refuge staff and volunteers, with help from the Region 2 Regional Office, have completed updating the San Bernardino NWR Complex Watchable Wildlife List.  This new list adds butterflies, dragonflies, and damsel flies for the first time.  It was believed these were necessary additions to the brochure due to the unique species that visitors can encounter while visiting the refuges.  Some of the dragonfly and damselfly species can only be found in the areas of the refuges.  The most challenging part of the brochure though had to be the bird list.  Southeastern Arizona lends itself to unique species that come up from Mexico.  Since the last update of the brochure, thirty-one new birds have been added.  Bringing the total number of birds documented on the refuges to 314.  The Watchable Wildlife List, in addition to being available to visitors at the refuges, is also available online.
