Refuges are Popping with
Summer and Fall Events
Find a reason – or maybe 300 − to visit a national wildlife refuge. Summer and fall refuge calendars are chock-full of festivals and events to spark a love of nature and make your refuge visit more special.
Choose from events featuring great outdoor recreation – hiking, biking, fishing or paddling on refuges – or those that spotlight seasonal wonders, such as the mass migration of birds in fall. Learn to recognize and photograph wildlife. Find out about wetland and prairie restoration. Or join in an adventure, such as a night search for owls or – yes, even, scorpions. All events are free or low-cost.
Learn how the Refuge System is protecting your natural heritage.
