"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in."
     - Rachel Carson

San Andres National Wildlife Refuge can ocassionally present an educational program to a Las Cruces school classroom.  Please allow for one month's notice for our staff to coordinate the date and prepare a classroom presentation on environmental and nature topics, such as:  native wildlife, migratory birds, the Chihuahuan desert, conservation, ecology, climate change, and/or the mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and careers/volunteer opportunities within the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Our Agency also has a mobile, educational trailer which represents all of the National Wildlife Refuges in the State of New Mexico.  Coordination can be arranged for this mobile trailer to be offered at local area, student educational field trips (such as the Southern New Mexico Fair).

Please contact the refuge office for more information. 

Be curious!  Ask questions!  Your sense of wonder is the spark that will ignite discovery and solutions to problems.  Read Rachel Carson's book, The Sense of Wonder to learn more.
