Winter Adds Ways to Enjoy
National Wildlife Refuges
Even in winter, national wildlife refuges hold pleasures for nature lovers. Look for surprises, too: ducks and geese in profusion, a furtive red fox darting past, animal prints stamped clearly in the ground, the creaking of trees in the cold. Try exploring some trails by snowshoe. Or take a wildlife tour . . . on a horse-drawn sleigh. Whatever your mode of transportation, national wildlife refuges will make the outing special.
Warm up at one of a host of special refuge events from wreath-making workshops to wildlife presentations.
Visit a refuge and make the most of this special time of year. Learn how the Refuge System is protecting your natural heritage.
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
