Fall Wonders Abound
On National Wildlife Refuges
Refuge bird festivals. Bike rides. Owl prowls and scorpion hunts. If one of these doesn’t draw you to a national wildlife refuge this fall, scores of other seasonal events likely will. Fall refuge calendars are bursting with events to make the most of this colorful time of year and build an appreciation for nature.
Try hiking, fishing or paddling on refuges – or attend a free or low-cost event that spotlights seasonal wonders, such as the migration of monarch butterflies or birds. Learn how the Refuge System is protecting your natural heritage.
