Field Trips The Refuge is offering ranger-led or self-guided field trips. Activities are geared toward 3rd-5th grade students, but can be adapted for other grades. Trips can be tailored to meet classroom needs or objectives related to natural resource topics. It is best to make reservations at least two weeks in advance. The Refuge requires 2 adult chaperones for every 10 children and can accommodate up to 40 students per visit.Classroom VisitsCan't make it out to the Refuge? No problem, we are offering free classroom presentations. The following topics are typically discussed: the history of the Refuge and the National Wildlife Refuge System; wildlife and habitat; endangered species; human impact; and how nature benefits people. Presentations typically last 30-45 minutes and staff would be happy to rotate through multiple classrooms the same day. Arrangements can be made to visit schools within 60 miles of Upham, ND.
