At a National Wildlife Refuge
There’s a chill in the air and a winter holiday mood to enjoy at a national wildlife refuge near you. Breathe in the brisk fresh air and see what natural wonders lie in store: great flocks of waterfowl heading south for the winter, the crunch of dried leaves underfoot, the rustle of small animals preparing for the cold ahead. Attend a refuge open house or other seasonal refuge event, and learn more.
Stimulate your mind and body with a nature walk in a season of flux. Visit a refuge and see what all the excitement is about.
