January Exhibit of the Month
Wildlife in Winter
top by the Visitor Center during regular hours and see our new monthly exhibit. While many of the Refuge’s wildlife hibernate or migrate for the winter, some species tough it out in the cold and snowy environment. Come take a look at which species and what signs you should keep an eye out for while you are cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.
January Movie of the Month
Nature: Magic of the Snowy Owl
A team of filmmakers provides an intimate look at the snowy owl. Snowy owls are built for the challenge of surviving the dark and cold Artic winter, their every sense honed to take on their frozen world. Once the brief Arctic summer approaches, they embark upon the challenge of raising young in one of the harshest environments on the planet. (Runtime: 60 minutes).
