See nature in a new light. Summer's a great time to thrill to natural wonders at a national wildlife refuge and have fun in the process. Hear endangered red wolves howl, gaze at the heavens, tag butterflies, take a boat tour of wilderness islands.

Or choose from a host of other family-friendly events, such as bird festivals, guided nature hikes and learn-to-fish days.

Visit a refuge and learn how the Refuge System is protecting your natural heritage.
