For Educators


National Wildlife Refuge system protects wildlife and actively supports visitor activities such as wildlife observation and photography, hunting, fishing, and interpretation and education.  If you are a teacher and would like to have a presentation about Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge, the National Wildlife Refuge system, a specific species of interest, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, or any other refuge related topic give us a call.  We will work with you to create a program that will enhance your students' experience in the classroom. 

We have a few tools in our education toolbox to support school programs.  Our store of replica sculls of waterfowl and other wildlife that can be found in this area can be used to demonstrate the various structural differences between carnivores and herbivores.  We have power point presentations that can be modified to focus on a specific topic.  If your group can manage a field trip to the refuge we can provide binoculars and a guide to point out the species along the auto tour. 
Call us at 775-779-2237 weekdays between 7 am and 4 pm to learn how we can help with your class program.
