  Recreation and Education Opportunities

Environmental Education
The refuge welcomes students to explore the wonders of nature. Classroom field trips to the Refuge rely entirely on an "educator led" concept. Educators and group leaders from the community plan and conduct their own field trips within the guidelines of the refuge's established programs. The refuge offers a range of resources and assistance to facilitate student learning.
