When visiting Monte Vista Refuge, families can check out the “Let’s Go Outside” activity backpacks from Refuge Headquarters.

Take kids on a habitat scavenger hunt, create a sound map, and test your bird ID skills with this adaptable activity book designed to be used by families, school groups, and anyone looking for a fun way to connect to nature. Inspired by the federal Every Kid in a Park initiative and geared towards fourth graders, this step-by-step guide will help you explore our country’s diverse habitats and birds that live there.
