The Annual National Wildlife Refuge Week

Wildlife Refuges' nationwide will be hosting special events and activities for this week long Celebration of America's Wild Places!  To encourage Americans to explore America’s natural beauty, rich history and culture, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced fee free days in 2012, including October 14 (in recognition of National Wildlife Refuge Week).  On these fee-free days and weekends, national wildlife refuges that charge a fee – as well as other public lands within the Department of the Interior – will waive entrance fees.

Fun for the whole family at Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge during National Wildlife Refuge Week!
