Join refuge volunteers as we work on seasonal projects to restore and reconstruct our native tallgrass prairie and oak savanna ecosystems!
Children ages 3-5 are invited to bring their favorite adult and join us as we learn about the wonders of winter wildlife on the prairie! We will read stories, go outside, make nature crafts, and much more. Pre-registration is required. Sign up by contacting Brianna Patrick by email at email@example.com or phone at 515-994-3400.
Please join us in helping collect important data
about birds at Neal Smith NWR, as well as nationwide data by participating in
Audubon's annual bird count. Every year, thousands of people participate
in Audubon's Christmas Bird Count. The data collected from these counts
is used by scientists to study the health of bird populations. A FREE
lunch will be provided by the Friends of NSNWR. Pre-registration is
required by December 29, 2015; contact Karen Viste-Sparkman by email or phone at
515-994-3400 to sign up.
