Waterfowl in Art Program


 The Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge invites families to a Waterfowl in Art program at the new visitor center on Saturday, January 26, beginning at 1:00 p.m. During this free indoor program, rangers will teach about the adaptations of ducks using taxidermy birds and hands-on materials. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the basics of drawing by sketching a duck with the help from professional artist Diane Dahl.

“We will learn how to draw what we see by incorporating common shapes into drawing a duck,” said Ranger Daniel Peterson. He added, “The art component of the program encourages participants to apply what they have learned and observed through a drawing.”

Activities are suitable for children ages five and older. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, contact the La Crosse District Office at (608) 779-2399 or visit the new visitor center, located at N5727 County Road Z, Onalaska, WI. Visitor center hours are Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and one Saturday each month for special programs from 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. We will be closed on all Federal holidays.
