Aligned Environmental Education lessons are important to the National Wildlife Refuge System, especially Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. The Refuge Ranger, a former Florida teacher, offers both on-site and off-site educational programs with superb visual aids for school groups and homeschoolers.
The two most popular on-site programs are Wading Birds Eat Mud Critters, and Florida's Ancient Indians of Shell Mound. Off-site programs can be tailored to your needs.
The Ranger provokes intellectual and emotional connections between visitors and wildlife, habitat,and cultural sites of the refuge. She is available for on-site and off-site presentations for clubs, civic organizations, and special interest groups. To learn more about refuge events, visit the Calendar of Events page. To schedule a program for your group, contact Ranger Pam Darty at (352) 493-0238 ext. 223.
