National Wildlife Refuges serve many purposes, and one of our most important roles is as outdoor classrooms to teach about wildlife and natural resources. Many refuges offer environmental education programs for a variety of audiences. Refuges provide unique and exciting outdoor environments – excellent locations for hands-on learning activities. Thousands of youth and adult groups visit every year to learn about a specific topic on wildlife, habitat, or ecological processes.
Please contact us at 402-376-1889 if your school, youth, or environmental group is interested in visiting and learning more about the wildlife, plants, habitats, and management of the Refuge. We will do our best to either provide a speaker or suggest a location that might meet your outdoor classroom needs.
