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.
Relict Dace, the only native species of fish at Ruby Lake, has reduced and hybridized populations due to introduction of several non-native species. A project is underway to preserve the biological integrity of the Relict Dace.
