National wildlife refuges announce fee-free days for 2014

America's national wildlife refuges will offer free admission to visitors on designated days in 2014. Refuges protect many iconic species, such as alligators and bison, whooping cranes, moose and puffins. There's at least one national wildlife refuge in every state – and one within an hour's drive of most major metropolitan areas.
