Fall weather has certainly arrived. It is a good time for bird watching, nature photography, and hunting. The lake’s shoreline is a tapestry of fall colors. Visit soon to wander through the leaves and enjoy the fall air before it is too late! Chances are, you just might see some amazing wildlife migrating and getting ready for the winter season. When you do visit, be aware of hunters on the refuge, and to our hunters – have a safe hunt!
Also, FYI, it’s time to clean the carpets, so the Visitor Center will be closed on Saturday, November 10.
Thank you to our many Creepy Critters volunteers! Over 450 people attended, some dressed in costume, and had a thrilling time learning about creepy critters! Many thanks as well to our partners: AmeriCorps, College of Western Idaho, the Bureau of Land Management, Friends of Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge, Nampa Public Library, and the University of Idaho for making this event great!
The Discover Wildlife Journeys field trip was also a success thanks to our amazing volunteers, Carolyn, Linda, Steve, Emily, Cathy, Sue, and Andy! Thank you for doing what you do!
