Second annual Turnbull spring nature festival May 18


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
