Snow Stopping Fun
At a National Wildlife Refuge
Snow and frost may change the landscape. But wonder is always present at national wildlife refuges. See for yourself. Layer up and explore your natural heritage at a refuge near you.
Identify animals by their tracks in the snow. Listen for a woodpecker’s tattoo. Attend a festival celebrating the 110th birthday of the National Wildlife Refuge System, and learn how your refuge is protecting wildlife and habitat for generations to come.
