Wild Angles is a reliable source of news about environmental issues, initiatives and events in the National Wildlife Refuge System, the world's premier system of public lands and waters set aside to conserve America's fish, wildlife and plants.
Summer Means Adventure in the National Wildlife Refuge System
You don’t have to go far to adventure this summer. Thrills abound on national wildlife refuges — along with views of creatures you don’t see every day. Paddle trips, fishing rodeos, butterfly counts and scavenger hunts in the night sky are just some of the adventures planned. See a complete calendar of refuge special events.
The National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, is the premier system of public lands and waters set aside to conserve America’s fish, wildlife and plants. There is a National Wildlife Refuge within an hour’s drive of most major U.S. cities.
