Free Environmental Education Programs:
Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge provides free environmental education programs for students ranging in age from Pre-K to college. Refuge staff work with educators to provide programs that meet the current curriculum needs of a classroom, and topics can range from environmental awareness to animal identification. The free presentations can be done at the school or arrangements can be made for students to schedule a field trip to the refuge. We understand that many school budgets are slim, and we want to find a method to tailor this unique learning experience no matter what the budget allows. Again, the programs are free and we encourage educators to reach out to us and discuss the possibilities.Educators can contact the refuge to learn more and to schedule a program. We have free booklets that provide further detail on the types of programs that can be offered.Refuge Field Trips:

Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to see migrating songbirds. After leaving their southern wintering grounds, the migratory birds begin arriving in March where the brightly colored males court the females before building a nest. Look for these beautiful, small birds, including eastern bluebirds, prothonotary warblers, painted and indigo buntings and more.
