Happy Birthday Refuges 100

This photo was taken by Jarrod Lee at the Waubay National Wildlife Refuge in Waubay, South Dakota during the Klondike Derby held January 18-19. Approximately 89 boy scouts and 21 adults took part in the festivities. After ice fishing in the morning, they helped celebrate the Refuge System Centennial by spelling out "Happy Birthday Refuges 100" with their bodies.
