Welcome Back Birds
The Metcalf Wildlife Refuge will welcome back waterfowl this Saturday the 24th. The public is invited to come to the refuge just outside of Stevensville. Staff will be on hand with high quality optics. They’ll assist anyone interested in identifying the over 19 species of birds that live there or stop on their way through during migration. It’s a family event with children activities planned so bring everyone along. It’s from 10 AM-2PM.
The Refuge was established in 1963 to provide habitat for migratory birds. The name of the Refuge honors the late U.S. Senator Lee Metcalf, who was a local high school graduate and had a lifelong commitment to conservation.
