Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge

Today we joined our Utah State Advocte Kathy Stopher at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Brigham City, Utah.  They had a Movie Premier at the Refuge, "Wings of Thunder", and we were there as well to do outreach and education. We talked to Children and Families on the importance of practicing Leave No Trace, and respecting wildlife. We had a small interpretive trail set up outside, but unfortunately the weather was not so great and rained out our Leave No Trace Trail, so we tabled inside instead.  Other activities that were going on were face painting, Making Bird masks, and the interpretive center activities inside the refuge visitor center. This is our second time doing outreach in the area, last fall we conducted a Trainer Course for the Refuge Centers volunteers and staff, and this year worked right beside them at the visitor center. Thanks again to Kathy for bringing us back, and having us at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. 

Happy Trails from the E-Tour, 

Alexis & Topher
