Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge offers environmental education programs for students of all ages. The refuge provides unique and exciting outdoor environments for hands-on, inquiry based learning activities. Numerous youth and adult groups visit every year to learn about wildlife, habitat, or ecological processes.
Topics for field trips include sea turtle conservation, a marine explorers program, coastal nature hikes and more. Refuge staff may also be available to visit your school, civic league or community group to conduct a program if a field trip is not possible. Other programs strive to educate today’s visiting public and youth about the refuge, ecology of the Gulf Coast and the mission of National Wildlife Refuges.
