Just For Kids

bug Safari 512x219Most educational events are coordinated with the help of the station's Friends Group "Friends of Maga Ta-Hohpi WPA".  Most outreach events are held on the Maga Ta-Hohpi WPA.  Catching insects is just one of many activities that are offered during the stations largest environmental education event "Prairie Fest"

The Huron WMD has on-going educational events for children and adults throughout the year. The station's friends Group "Friends of Maga Ta-Hohpi" WPA helps the Huron WMD fund and staff the stations outreach events.  A full list of events can be found on the Friends Group Web site.  A fun activity book (2.82 MB) funded by the Friends of Maga Ta-Hohpi helps children learn about South Dakotas National Wildlife Refuges.  Let's Go Outside is the Fish and Wildlife Service's national incentive to encourage kids to become more aware of the adventures that await them in the outdoors.  The Fish and Wildlife Service also has more printable coloring books and activity guides available.

The Fish and Wildlife Service sponsors the national Jr. Duck Stamp Contest each year.  The Jr. Duck stamp is a pictoral stamp produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to recognize the conservation efforts of young people and to support environmental and conservation education programs in the United States.  The art competition is the culmination of students' study of waterfowl and wetlands conservation in the classroom, home school, or non-formal education setting  The brochure Waterfowl Xpress is the information guide to the Jr. Duck Stamp program.  Click here for the text for the Waterfowl Xpress brochure (1.88MB) .
