Have a Holly Jolly Season
at a National Wildlife Refuge
Just for a day, escape the crowds, and relish the natural wonder of the holiday season.
Breathe in the winter holiday mood at a national wildlife refuge near you. Look for birds soaring overhead, tracks of animals in the snow, the sounds of a natural landscape preparing for winter. Attend a refuge open house or other seasonal refuge event, and learn more.
Restore your senses with a walk on a wooded wildlife trail. Visit a refuge and see what all the excitement is about.
