Programs at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge


Nature Kids!

Tuesday, Sept. 24, 11 a.m. to noon

A new class geared towards 4-to 6-year-olds. Classes about nature and common backyard animals and plants are featured in this bi-monthly program. Each class is different and children do not need to attend previous classes in order to participate. The session will focus on their sight adaptations.

Each class is limited to 15 children. A parent or guardian must be present throughout the one-hour session. Meet at the refuge visitor center and headquarters. Activities will be held in the classroom. Registration required.

Digital Photography 101 for Newbies!

Saturday, Sept. 14, 9:30 to 11 a.m.

This free presentation is for the person who owns a digital camera (of any variety), but either doesn’t know how to use it, or has been frustrated with their results. The presentation will provide a broad overview of the entire “digital workflow” – from taking the picture to editing images on a computer. Practical tips for achieving compelling images of nature and wildlife will be shared during the session. The presentation will occur in the refuge’s visitor center auditorium. Registration is not required.
