At National Wildlife Refuges!
If you get a thrill from seeing natural wonders – the annual spring spawn of horseshoe crabs along the mid-Atlantic coast, alligators roaring for mates in Okefenokee Swamp, prairie chickens strutting and calling in the Southwest – national wildlife refuges are the places for you.
If you enjoy more organized celebrations of nature – bird festivals, guided nature hikes, family fishing days – you’ll find plenty of those at refuges this season, too.
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. Refuges also improve human health, provide outdoor recreation and support local economies. Visit our home page at www.fws.gov/refuges. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service works with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. For more information, visit www.fws.gov, or connect with us through any of these social media channels:
