Nearly 1,400 U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees are military veterans, many of whom continue to serve in Reserve and National Guard units across the country. We thank each one of our veterans, and honor their service to our nation.

Each week, we feature just a few of the opportunities available at a handful of our refuges for the week. There's always something to do outside!
The Service is going green! We're working toward making everything from our facilities to our vehicles carbon neutral within the next eight years.
