Groups of seven or more may schedule a program with refuge naturalists by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Most programs last one hour.
Explore the world of waterfowl, eagles, hawks, and scores of song birds in an introduction to the sport of birding. Naturalists provide high power spotting scopes, binoculars, and bird identification books.
Scurrying between shrubs, meadow grass, and cottonwood trees kangaroo rats, cactus mice and other small mammals live in abundance on the refuge's lush vegetation. See these creatures up close in this class that amazes both youth and adults.
Horse thieving, prospecting, ranching, and the occasional murder make Pahranagat Valley’s history quite colorful. Hear stories of the valley’s wild west years and see two of the area's oldest cabins.
When the sun sets Pahranagat NWR comes alive with the calls of owls and coyotes. Learn how these animals’ adaptations allow them to thrive in the darkness. During the warmer months of the year, go on a search for scorpions with black lights provided by naturalists.
Away from the city lights the night sky fills with bright planets and constellations. Take a tour of the night sky and view galaxies, planets, nebulae and globular clusters through a reflecting telescope.
