Bring on the ColorNature’s Fall Display Opens at National Wildlife Refuges
Knockout palettes of red and gold. More birds in flight than you’ve ever seen. Crisp fall air and the crunch of dried leaves underfoot. Prepare for a delicious assault on your senses this season at national wildlife refuges.
Then add a host of fun activities for you and your friends or family: Migration festivals. River paddles. Bird hikes and photo tours. Refuges have something for everyone, even if you prefer solitary walks or a favorite fishing hole.
National Wildlife Refuge Week, October 12-18, is a great time to visit and learn what refuges have for you. It’s your nature. Enjoy it.
The National Wildlife Refuge System protects wildlife and wildlife habitat on more than 150 million acres of land and water from the Caribbean to the Pacific, Maine to Alaska. Refuges also improve human health, provide outdoor recreation and support local economies. Visit our home page at www.fws.gov/refuges. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
