Earth Day!

In honor of Earth Day, we invite volunteers to help us restore prairie and oak savanna ecosystems. During this event, volunteers will participate in a variety of stewardship activities. Scouts or other groups are welcome. A FREE lunch will be provided by the Friends of Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge.
