The country owes a debt of gratitude to military veterans, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is fortunate that many veterans find their skills can be put to good use conserving the nature of America. More than 1,400 veterans work at USFWS and that number is growing.
In honor of America's veterans and members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families, we're offering fee-free access for all to national wildlife refuges during Veterans Day weekend Nov. 9 to 11.
