Winter Warriors (January 5 & 26) - Where do the frogs, bees, and turtles go in winter? Discover how the animals of the Refuge survive deep snow and extreme temperatures of the open prairie.

Whoo Goes There? (February 2 & 23) - Do you know which one of our birds is the first to lay an egg? Whoo could it be? Come on over to the Visitor Center to discover this and many more fun facts about the Refuge's earliest nester.

Just Ducky (March 2 & 30) - Duck, duck, goose! Spring is almost here and that means ducks and lots of 'em! We'll learn where they've been all winter and why they come back each spring.

Bison Anniversary Tour (Wednesday, March 17, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm) - On March 17, 2007, sixteen bison were brought to the Refuge from the National Bison Range in Montana.

    We did the Tuesday Tots, it was great! The kids played in the exhibits, played some games, acted out animals in winter, did a puppet show and a craft. And it's free! Lots of folks hiking around the guest center, too.
