Albert the Squirrel's Kids Page

Hi Kids!!

Welcome to my neck of the woods! My name is Albert and I'm an endangered Delmarva fox squirrel. I live at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge with the rest of my wild friends. Our Refuge Manager is working hard to make sure that endangered species like me have a home for the future and that all the other animals have a home here, too!

Click on one of the links below to color a picture, play a trivia game, or read a Canada goose story. Also learn how you can become an OFFICIAL JUNIOR REFUGE MANAGER. If you complete the required tasks and you've got what it takes, then you too could receive a refuge manager certificate and an official manager badge just like the one our manager wears! Have fun learning and share this site with your friends!
