Environmental Education

EE-K X512

Education is the key to open all the doors and windows of the soul when it comes to the outdoors....  Join us to learn about the refuge, as well as its habitats and the wildlife they support!


 National Wildlife Refuges serve many purposes, and one of our most important roles is as outdoor classrooms to teach about wildlife and natural resources. Many refuges offer environmental education programs for a variety of audiences. Refuges provide unique and exciting outdoor environments – excellent locations for hands-on learning activities. Thousands of youth and adult groups visit every year to learn about a specific topic on wildlife, habitat, or ecological processes.

If you are an educator, you'll be amazed at our offerings!  And, we offer tons of stuff just for kids!
