Ready... Set… Travel
To a National Wildlife Refuge
Summer means a chance to unwind and hit the road with the kids or your sweetie. For cheap thrills, plan a summer trip around a national wildlife refuge. Refuge stopovers get an enthusiastic thumbs up from this travel website: http://bit.ly/19IHgtN
Of course, any season is the right season to get outdoors and enjoy a wildlife refuge. But if you want a wide choice of free or low-cost public outdoor events – catering to most every taste – now is a great time.
See wildlife you don’t usually see. Fish, hike, paddle… or just enjoy nature. Visit a historic lighthouse or pioneer cabin. 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 andTwitter
