A wayward flamingo plunked its long slender legs into the salt marsh at San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge's South San Diego Bay Unit, fittingly this past Valentine's Day, creating a burst of color in the otherwise neutral landscape. The unexpected bird, which is still happily foraging on the restored marsh, energized news crews, neighbors and birders. Far from its home range, the flamingo is thought to have escaped from a private collection.

The Service was just one of many partners on a native grassland restoration project on the Fred Berry Conservation Education Center in Arkansas to provide habitat for declining grassland birds. Then monarch butterflies and other pollinators were added. Now groups take classes, camp, hike, fish, hunt or work on conservation projects. Livestock producers can even take workshops.
