Celebrate At a Refuge Near You

By Linda Tancs

It’s National Wildlife Refuge Week, and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service wants you to celebrate at a refuge near you.  You’ll find an open house this week at the Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge on the Big Island in Hawaii.  Take a guided bird hike or a tour of the greenhouse where native plants are being propagated.  Among the lower 48, why not join the staff at New Jersey’s Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge for a sunset nature walk to view the migrating ducks.  As the poet William Wordsworth so aptly put it, “Come forth into the light of things, Let Nature be your teacher.”
