A biologist will lead teachers and students through the wildlife refuge, while sharing information about the flora and fauna found there and in the Moapa Valley. The Service can work with teachers to develop curriculum tailored to the desired focus and students' grade level. We recommend chaperons in addition to the
teacher(s) who will be leading the field trip.
Additionally, the Service can come to the school to present information in the classroom about the wildlife refuge and the species that call it home.
To schedule a field trip or classroom presentation, contact the refuge manager at 702-515-5225, or the visitor services manager at 702-515-5453. Please contact us at least one month in advance of your planned activity.

Prior to acquisition, part of what is now the refuge was developed and operated as a resort, with swimming pools, bath houses, snack bars, and recreational vehicle hook-ups. The springs are thermal in nature and have an average annual water temperature of 90 degrees Fahrenheit at their points of discharge.
