at a National Wildlife Refuge
Don’t let the winter keep you captive. Throw on some layers and explore the natural world outside your four walls. There are few better places to do that than a national wildlife refuge.
In winter, nature reveals secrets hidden in other seasons. Tracks in the snow tell what went where and when. A woodpecker’s industrious tat-tat-tat radios information on the size of both bird and tree. Bare limbs make birds easier to spot. Attend a refuge event, and learn how your refuge is protecting wildlife and habitat for generations to come.
