Refuge System interpretation programs provide opportunities for visitors to make their own connections to the natural world.  From self-guided walks to ranger-led programs, Seedskadee NWR and many other national wildlife refuges help visitors learn more about the wildlife and habitat behind the landscapes.

Through some of our signs and brochure or exhibits at the visitors' center, you can learn why a huge variety of birds pass through the refuge each spring and fall, about the beneficial role of water management at the refuge to encourage trumpeter swans to nest, and thousands of other interesting and informative stories.  

The Refuge is rich in history as well, visit our history page to learn more or pick up a historical perspective brochure the next time you're at Seedskadee. The historical perspective brochure gives a brief history of fourteen historical sites with some sort of structure structure
Something temporarily or permanently constructed, built, or placed; and constructed of natural or manufactured parts including, but not limited to, a building, shed, cabin, porch, bridge, walkway, stair steps, sign, landing, platform, dock, rack, fence, telecommunication device, antennae, fish cleaning table, satellite dish/mount, or well head.
