At National Wildlife Refuges
Winter is a magical season at national wildlife refuges. Lace up your boots or snowshoes and explore snow-covered trails. You'll find the rewards more than worth the effort. Look for deer and fox tracks and, maybe even snow angels made by quail or pheasants. An eagle’s nest may show signs of activity. Great flocks of ducks and geese may feed in the shallows or take noisy flight when startled.
Warm up at one of a host of special refuge events – from photo workshops to wildlife talks.
Visit a refuge and learn how the Refuge System is protecting your natural heritage.
The National Wildlife Refuge System protects wildlife and wildlife habitat on more than 150 million acres of land and water from the Caribbean to the Pacific, Maine to Alaska.
