Environmental Education Off Refuge
Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge
Winter Outreach Programs
The refuge's winter outreach program, where our facilitators come to your school, runs from November through mid April. Twelve, age-leveled presentations are offered covering a diversity of topics.
When: November - Mid April
Scheduling: To schedule an outreach presentation, please call the refuge’s environmental education classroom at (509) 235-4700 and ask for our Environmental Education AmeriCorps intern. For more information on the refuge’s environmental education program, contact Sandy Rancourt, Visitor Services Manager at (509) 235-4723, ext. 228.
*Please Note: If possible, we prefer to present one type of outreach presentation (i.e., Owls) to 2-3 classes per visit. Our staffing is limited; your patience is appreciated through the scheduling process. We will call as soon as possible to confirm your registration. All efforts will be made to accommodate your needs, however, because of the shortage of facilitators classes could be subject to cancellation in the event of sickness, weather, or an emergency. Thank you!
**The Service can no longer afford to purchase crayfish and owl pellets for the Crayfish Dissection and Owl Outreach Programs. Please go to the following potential sources to purchase these items for either of these requested programs. We also offer an alternative Owl Program that does not require owl pellets.
