Refuge Explorers

The Refuge Explorers program has been suspended for now due to COVID. It will be resuming at a later date as soon as it is safe.

Calling all explorers: come join us for a monthly adventure! See nature come alive as we discover our surroundings and learn about the refuge from the pages of books to the forests and wetlands. This program is especially suitable for scout groups!

Refuge Explorers is a hands-on program for 6-10 year olds focused on getting kids outside and engaged in nature. Dress for the weather (rain or shine) and an adventure!

Family friendly, siblings welcome. Programs are by appointment, please contact Ranger Jared ( or 978-579-4028) to book your group’s Refuge Explorers program or for more information.
