Enjoy spring by experiencing and learning about the exceptional wildlife, habitats and geology of the unique Channeled Scablands landscape. In partnership with numerous organizations/agencies, Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge is holding the second annual free spring nature festival May 18, with activities for families and individuals of all ages.
Take a walk on the wild side, and discover birds, wild flowers, insects, other wildlife, and catch a glimpse of remnants of the Ice Age floods that created the diverse scablands habitat. Nature hikes, tours, kids’ activities, and informational booths, provided by a number of organizations, will make for a wonderful spring day outdoors in this remarkable environment.
The festival runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., with some activities requiring reservations. For more information please see the refuge web page at www.fws.gov/refuge/turnbull.
