Ruby Lake NWR provides a great opportunity to view and learn about plants and wildlife native to the Great Basin. In addition to our lengthy auto tour, the Refuge constructed a new handicap accessible wildlife observation platform at Narcisse Boat Landing in spring of 2011. During 2012, thirteen new interpretive panels were placed along the auto tour and boat landings to share information with visitors regarding our native wildlife, cultural history, and the unique hydrological cycle supporting our marsh ecosystem. The Refuge receives several school visits each year, and visiting students are issued binoculars and given a guided tour from the comfort of their own bus. Additionally, our staff enjoys visiting schools, summer camps, and other local venues where they have delivered a variety of wildlife presentations to young and old alike.
If you have a class or group that is interested in a Refuge tour or one of our staff presentations, please contact the Refuge at (775) 779-2237.
