Squaw Creek Refuge Fall Interns Provide Valuable Service to Visitors
Midwest Region, November 30, 2008
Print Friendly Version

Two interns from Missouri Western State University developed and presented programs to visitors at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge this fall.  This program was attempted during the spring migration and was so successful, it was continued during the fall.  Two students, one working on Saturday and one on Sunday from October 4 to November 30, developed a different program each weekend and presented it to interested visitors at 1 p.m.  They also spent time driving the auto tour route contacting visitors as well as assisting volunteers staffing the refuge office.

The interns gave programs to 136 visitors and made 832 contacts during the nine weekends.  The Midland Empire Audubon Society and Burroughs Audubon Society paid basic stipends for each student to help cover the cost for fuel.  This program provided an opportunity for each student to research a subject, develop the topic and then gave them the experience to meet with visitors.
