Midwest Regional Director Tom Melius visited Squaw Creek NWR, just south of Mound City, Mo., on Tuesday, Mar. 15. to present the Midwest Region's "Sense of Wonder" Award to Amanda Griffin. Amanda has developed a junior naturalist program at Squaw Creek NWR that helps local elementary school kids get out in our natural environment and gain a greater understanding of how we can enjoy and protect our nation's natural resources to improve all our lives. Amanda's selection as the regional winner of the sense of wonder award puts her in the running for winning the national award.
