    The Junior Duck Stamp Program is an art- and science-based curriculum that teaches kids about wetlands and waterfowl conservation.  Join us as we partner with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge for this exciting event!  Young birders will learn about habitat conservation, receive tips about drawing waterfowl for the art contest from a past contest winner, and have the opportunity to explore the Prairie Learning Center at the Refuge.  You won't want to miss this unique event!  This event is free but advanced registration is required.

    That's right, we're returning to this fantastic winter birding location!  Our targets will be three birds traditionally found at this location: Red-shouldered Hawk, Northern Saw-whet Owl, and Pileated Woodpecker. We'll practice the strategies and good field etiquette in searching for the owls; if we're lucky enough to find one, we'll enjoy it briefly, quietly, and from a distance!  Our last winter visit to this location yielded at least 3 different owls!  This trip is free but advanced registration is required.
