Become a Junior Refuge Manager! Becoming a Junior Refuge Manager is a great way to learn about Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Stop by the refuge visitor contact station and ask for a Junior Refuge Manager brochure to begin your journey. The brochure has several questions about refuge wildlife, trees, etc. that you will see on the boardwalk trail. Once you have completed the activity booklet, take it back to the refuge visitor contact station and a refuge employee will check your answers, and give you an official Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge Junior Refuge Manager pin. You can take it home and show all of your friends!

Chironomids, named after their scientific family group Chironomidae, are commonly referred to as “non-biting midges” to distinguish them from their biting relatives (like “no-see-ums” that bite humans voraciously). They are dipteran cousins to mosquitoes (Diptera commonly known as true flies which include many familiar insects like mosquitoes, black flies, midges-both biting and non-biting, fruit flies and house flies).
