The refuge welcomes school groups and others interested in environmental education. School field trips and classroom visits are accommodated through tours, hikes, pond studies, games and talks. To schedule a field trip, contact the visitor services manager.

Staff at the refuge also assist college and university faculty by providing both field trips and classroom lectures on a range of topics, including wildlife habitat management, conservation biology, disturbance and landscape ecology and ecosystem restoration. Please contact the wildlife biologist at least one month in advance to schedule any presentation.
