The Moosehorn NWR headquarters building will be open for
visitors this afternoon. There will be exhibits for viewing,
including a showcase of wildlife items that have been seized at our borders from smugglers. Photos of wildlife captured by our trail cams will be running throughout the afternoon, and there will be displays showing refuge habitat, wildlife, and management activities.
Refuge staff will be present to answer questions and provide recommendations on hiking trails, fishing, hunting, birding hot spots, wildlife inventory and monitoring projects, and habitat management. Refuge maps and brochures, posters, and the Where People Care About Wildlife DVD will be available.
There will be two guided tours of parts of the refuge not normally open to the public; tours will leave the refuge office at 1:30 and 3:30 pm.
